Established in 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s most historic family owned wine company.

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. 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Shiraz. Matured for 22 months in 18% new French barriques and Hungarian hogsheads, balance in older French, Hungarian and American barriques and hogsheads.
"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." 93 Points - Wine Advocate / 96 JS / 94 Decanter / 93 WE / 92 W&S
