Yalumba The Signature 2005
Product Details

 

Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

The grapes were hand picked and crushed to our 8 tonne open top stainless steel fermenters. The natural or 'wild' yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the sugar fermentation. Cultured winery yeasts were then added to complete this fermentation. The result is a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity. Deep dark red in colour this wine displays aromas which are dense and curranty, yet pure and bright. The nose shows lifted florals, violets and choc mints. The palate is brooding and serious with dark chocolate hazelnuts and warm generosity. The Signature finishes with long fine powdery tannins.
