Winemaker Notes

This wine is medium to deep brick red in color and opens with perfumed fruits, showing blue exotic florals, pomegranate and cranberry, with milk chocolate and licorice depth. The palate is medium weighted with a fresh, tight acidity carrying through. Stylish, approachable and very drinkable. To enjoy this wine at its best we recommend decanting. Pair with beef fillet accompanied by beetroot and horseradish or pinto bean burgers with mushrooms and caramelized onions.

JS 93
James Suckling
This has a deep array of cassis and blackberries with some dried red fruit, spices and cedar. The palate is rich in mellow, red-plum and redcurrant flavors with fresh, easygoing, leathery complexity at the finish. Very classically styled. A blend of 51% cabernet sauvignon and 49% shiraz.

Wine Enthusiast

This premium cuvée from Yalumba is classic Barossa. An almost 50-50 split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, it is rich and muscular yet restrained and balanced. It weaves notes of chocolate, plums, cherries, licorice, olives and ground black pepper with sweeter, cola-like notes from aging in a variety of oak barrels. The fruit on the palate feels bright and fresh thanks to a nice line of acidity. It's supported by savory, textured tannins. Drink now, with protein at hand and until 2029 at least.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Yalumba's 2015 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz features complementary notes of cedar and cassis, vanilla and blackberries, mint and black olives. It's full-bodied and velvety in feel, with ample tannin but also a sense of generosity, and it has a long, grainy-textured finish. Concentrated and intense, it should age well for a decade and a half or more. This 46th vintage of The Signature has been dedicated to Darrell Kruger, Barossa vineyard manager for Yalumba since 1975.

COMMENTARY: I have always found the Yalumba Signature to be an eloquent blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The 2015 vintage shows up nicely. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh, alive, and food-friendly. Pair its bright red fruit and chalky aromas and flavors with game birds. (Tasted: September 24, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

This is a lush cabernet that keeps a cool profile, enriched by dark fruit and tannins that taste of coffee and bitter chocolate, even as the structure feels lovely and restrained. The wine benefits considerably from time with air, giving itself more fully a day after it’s first opened. Cellar it for a year or two, then serve with grilled lamb.

Yalumba Winery Video

Established in 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s most historic family owned wine company. It remains fiercely independent and extremely progressive through the generational ownership by the Hill-Smith family. Yalumba’s longevity and success is a result of patience, collaboration and progressive thinking. There is foresight to embrace the natural terroir to craft wines with individual character and a sense of purpose, a spirit to reinvest in the land upon which it operates and knowledge to behave as a leader in the industry. It is committed to sharing stories of provenance gathered over more than 168 years of history of family winemaking. Barossa is arguably the single most famous wine region in Australia. Barossa includes both Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, making it one of the only areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. Yalumba is privileged to have access to some of the oldest vineyards in the world in Barossa Valley, including 1889 bush vine Grenache and 1908 Shiraz. At the inner sanctum of Coonawarra, on the prized terra rossa soil, lies Yalumba’s Coonawarra estate, The Menzies Vineyard. Comprised predominantly of Cabernet Sauvignon vines, this single vineyard is committed to growing premium quality fruit reflecting distinctive varietal characters of the region. Wrattonbully’s cool climate, plentiful high quality artesian water and well drained terra rossa soils led wine companies to plant large areas of mainly red grape varieties.

At Yalumba we continually strive to reduce our impact on the environment, stay involved in our community, and make great wine with minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the winery. We are committed to sustainable practices, with the belief that the healthier and more biodiverse the vineyards are the better the wines will be. Yalumba has been developing its own sustainable viticulture program since the mid 1990s, promoting the economic production of quality grapes . For every hectare of vineyard we own, we have at least one hectare of native vegetation. Our winemaking philosophy and practice means that our wines are made with the least intervention possible but with as much knowledge, confidence and expertise as possible. We want our wines to show their provenance and natural appellation – whether it be a single site, a variety or blend, or a personal style. At Yalumba we have been making wine utilising ‘wild yeast’ for over 20 years. We believe that the success and consistency that we have with wild ferments is a direct result of healthy biodiverse vineyards. All Yalumba wines are 100% vegan since the 2012 vintage, elevating our wines to a safe and ethical choice. Becoming vegan came from the desire to make wines of conviction that taste of provenance and natural appellation; and that ultimately represent quality.

Barossa Valley Wine

Barossa, Australia

View all products

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds.

While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
