Made from a blend of 71% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Barossa Valley Shiraz, the 2016 is a wine with "very impressive sense of composure" (JS). The nose shows lovely harmony, offering notes of red and blue fruits, deep violet and forest wood. With "a strong drive at the finish", this incredible wine clearly has a long future ahead of it. Huon Hooke of the Real Review anticipates this wine to drink well into 2041.

Producer

Australia's oldest family-owned winery proves that humility and patience can deliver outstanding, age-worthy wines.” James Suckling

Established in 1849, Yalumba is the oldest family-owned winery in Australia. Founded by Samuel Smith, in the heart of the Barossa, the Hill-Smith family has continued to run the business for six generations.

As a result of its continuity of family ownership, it has been able to foster long-term relationships with generational growers in the Barossa as well as maintaining estate vineyards in the Barossa and Coonawarra. Yalumba combines a long-standing track record and many of the values of Old World family-owned wineries with innovation and invention. It also proudly maintains its own vine nursery as well as the only operational, on-site winery cooperage in the Southern Hemisphere.

Robert Hill-Smith, fifth-generation, led Yalumba into the modern era and cemented Yalumba’s international reputation for quality, authenticity, excitement and integrity. Robert notably pioneered Viognier in Australia, making Yalumba one of the most distinguished Viognier producers in the world, with the flagship The Virgilius often regarded as an Australian benchmark. Yalumba has carved a reputation for the iconic Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz revered as “The Great Australian Red”. These reds, traditionally known as "Australian Clarets", have been a focus at Yalumba for more than a century. Robert often says: “The beauty of Cabernet Shiraz is that by and large you can’t compare it to anything, it is absolutely quintessentially Australian.” The Signature has been the flagship Barossa example since 1962 and is one of Australia’s most celebrated red wines. More recently, in 2017, Yalumba launched their most prestigious wine The Caley, a Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz "Super Claret", and the pinnacle of Yalumba’s winemaking journey of excellence.
