Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Shiraz 2014 Museum Release


| /

Region: Barossa
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz
First Glance: Silky, Structured, Perfumed, Elegant 

The Wine:
The majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon components were sourced in the Barossa Valley from four main vineyards as well as one vineyard in Eden Valley. The diversity of our vineyard selection provides the rich lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics and palate structure that the Signature is renowned for. Vintage 2014 in Barossa produced some excellent aromatic and structured parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon. All parcels of fruit were fermented separately either in eight tonne open fermenters or six tonne static potter fermenters using wild yeasts. 

This wine is medium to deep brick red in colour and opens with perfumed fruits, showing pretty blue exotic florals, pomegranate and cranberry, with milk chocolate and liquorice depth. The palate is medium weighted, with a fresh tight acidity carrying through. Very stylish, very approachable and very drinkable.
