I have a real soft spot for Signature. Definitive old skool, but also, reliably good for cellar, impressive youthful drinking. Rustic charm, yet polished, like cracked leather seats in a beautifully maintained vintage car.
This couldn’t be more ocker. Succulent, long, medium weight and hemmed with beautiful tannins, this is a good release of this wine and revels in a little elegance over assumed grunt, though you won’t miss the tongue grapple of the finish. Blueberries, dusty notes, ferrous character, clove, and some cocoa powder. Travels long and well. Delivers that sweet and earthy mesh of both varieties so clearly. It’s very charming. – 94+ Points, Drink 2020-2035+, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
I have been a great fan of the Yalumba Signature style for a long time. It’s old school Cabernet Shiraz at its best and the 2015 is full of rich plum and blackberry fruit with savoury spice notes adding lots of complexity: clove, liquorice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The intensity, concentration and richness to the mouthfeel is outstanding. The tannins are long and firm with just the right amount of austerity. Begging for a char-grilled steak. – Ian Cook, FWC.
