Terroir & Site
The majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon components were sourced
in the Barossa Valley from four main vineyards as well as one
vineyard in Eden Valley. The diversity of the vineyard selection
provides the rich lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics and palate
structure that the Signature is renowned for. The Shiraz components
include plantings from as old as 1925, 1935 and 1945. These blocks
are of sandy loam, featuring yellow sand and ochre clays over red
clay. The combination of these Barossa blocks provides the Shiraz
sweetness, fullness, depth and layers of complexity.
Winemaking & Viticulture
Vintage 2014 in Barossa produced some excellent aromatic and
structured parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon. All parcels of fruit were
fermented separately either in eight tonne open fermenters or six
tonne static potter fermenters using wild yeasts. The wild yeast
helped contribute to complexities in the wine, creating richness and
fine textures. The open top fermenters use a cap plunger that slowly
pushes the skins into the juice for a gentle extraction of colour and
tannin. The grapes in the potters were fermented two ways. The
first by irrigating the fermented juices over the skins, the second
by draining all the juice away from the skins and then flooding it
back. The various skin contact management on each individual batch
allowed them to make a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness,
texture and complexity.
Tasting Comments
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.
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
Enjoyable now, or cellar for ten or more years
