The Wine:
Sourced from select vineyards scattered throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys, this blend is a tribute to the expertise and dedication of Yalumba's loyal collection of growers. With an almost perfect growing season in 2012, the Barossa region has again produced some excellent aromatic and structured parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, just perfect for The Signature. All parcels of fruit were fermented separately in either eight-tonne open fermenters or six-tonne static potter fermenters using wild yeasts.

Almost blood red, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz in motion, changing and shifting from red scents of currants and cranberries to the black fruits of plum compote and black cherries, before a touch of cedar, leafy herbs and powdery black spices freshen the finish. The wine has a coolness that belies its power. The expression is as restrained as it is muscular. Richly layered, the fruit completes the structure. Underneath there’s an umami earthiness, like scents of camping in the woods. Impeccably balanced.
