Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"For more than five decades Yalumba The Signature has saluted the very best of Australia’s most legendary red wine blend – Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz. Deep, complex and brooding, The Signature is a cerebral wine crafted with longevity in mind. A sentimental favourite, The Signature recognises individuals who have made a significant contribution to the life and culture at Yalumba.

It is with great pleasure we release our 56th Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz – a superb 2014 vintage that honours Chris Greening. We raise a glass of this wine to celebrate Chris's years of service, commencing in 1989 as Sales Manager, S Smith & Son, Adelaide. Chris rose to State Manager, South Australia & NT in 1998, in 2016 this was coupled with managing Western Australia, before retiring in 2017.

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."
Reviews for the 2013 vintage below...
5 Stars & 97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"​This latest offering lives up to its billing as one of the country’s most consistently outstanding reds. Notes of dark fruit, espresso, mocha, clove and cedar lead to a concentrated palate that is filled with succulent fruit flavours and spicy nuances, together with silky texture and rounded tannins. Plump, fleshy and undeniably gratifying, this is elegantly opulent and offers sophistication and refinement. At its best: 2023 to 2038."
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, August 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"Full, dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour. The nose is moderately concentrated, but showing real depth of ripe blackberries, blackcurrants, plums and liquorice with gorgeous spice notes and hints of eucalyptus. The nose is harmonious and quite complete in presentation, unfolding sweet and cedary oak layers. This has a youthful robustness. On palate, this is rich, luscious and openly accessible, unfolding layers of blackberry fruit with black liquorice and plums and subtle cassis notes. The fruit grows in layers and expression and is matched by plenty of tannin extraction. This has a grainy robustness and vigour, with mouthfilling flavours and excellent length. This will become more integrated over the next 10-12 years. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon from 5 sites in the Barossa Valley and 48% Shiraz mainly from Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 20 months on 37% new French, Hungarian and American oak."
92/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2013 Vintage)
"Still youthful and closed, the 2013 The Signature Cabernet Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple colour with notes of cassis, cedar, a touch of herbs and warm blackberries. The wine has a firm structure, while being grainy with a racy line going through it. It has great length and should age beautifully!"
