Yalumba The Scribbler Cabernet Shiraz 2013
Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around". Five generations and 160 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in sizeand stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.
This Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz blend draws on the strong heritage and unmatched diversity found in Australia’s most celebrated wine region, the Barossa. The Scribbler’ pays homage to one of Yalumba’s most renowned wines ‘The Signature’ Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz, made continuously since 1962. ‘The Scribbler’ reinforces our dedication to this wine style and celebrates its provenance to Barossa.
This wine is very deep red in colour, showing richness and concentration. Aromas of blackcurrant, anise and dark berries show through; with dried herbs, cedar, olives and a coolness of fresh mint to follow. The richness continues on the palate, hints of the cool mint and red and black currants flow through the soft, fleshy middle palate. This wine has a balanced concentration that has fruit depth and a fine tannin focus as its feature, with a lengthy finish.
