Yalumba 'The Signature' 2014

Yalumba 'The Signature' 2014 - 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Shiraz


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

96 pts James Halliday Australian Wine Companion
Matured for 20 months in French, Hungarian and American oak. This ticks all the boxes, a rock of ages in the storm of Yalumba reds coming onto the market, led by The Cayley, but numerous others seeking your company. The blackcurrant and blackberry fruit are in total harmony, and the overall texture is of a high order thanks to the oak management, as well as that of the tannins. A standout from a vintage that had its challenges.
95 pts Decanter
This Barossa classic – the 56th release - honours loyalty and contribution. In a tricky vintage, it discharges its duty admirably. The 57% Cabernet stamps its authority, from the minty, inky, floral nose to the dried-herb-edged dark currant and berry palate. Juicier notes of blood plum come through, with finely textured, mille feuille tannins which make for a poised, persistent finish. This spent 21 months in French, Hungarian and American barriques and hogsheads, 32% new. Polished and steadfast. Drinking Window 2018 - 2034



Winemaker Notes

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. Decant and enjoy with a char-grilled rump or eggplant steak with all the extras.
