Yalumba Signature Barossa Valley Label Slightly Cellar Damaged 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Kevin Glastonbury Region Barossa Vintage 2002 Harvested March, April & May 2002 Alc/Vol 14% Cellaring Optimum drinking 8-12 years from vintage Total Acid 6.5 g/L pH 3.47 The 2002 vintage was indeed exemplary. The weather remained mild and dry over the long ripening period, in fact the month of January experienced the lowest day temperatures on record. The end result was wines with great colour, varietal flavours and intensity. Yalumba The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2002 is a dense, plum red colour, that abounds with dark brooding aromas of black fruits, plum and currants, with suggestions of licorice and spice tightly interwoven with creamy oak. Long smooth and silky flavours fill the plump concentrated palate. Powerful but restrained, the wine finishes with a mouthful of fine layered tannins.

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". Six generations and more than 150 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements. Elements Yalumba likes to call 'the controllables', such as the Yalumba Vine Nursery and on-site cooperage – as well as other factors that cannot be emulated by any other winery. Yalumba’s history and tradition combined with a reputation for innovation.

The 2002 The Signature (56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Shiraz) was given the same upbringing as its young sibling, but 2002 is a better vintage for Yalumba. The 2002 exhibits smoky, blackberry, incense, charcoal, and floral characteristics along with... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2002 Yalumba The Signature (Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz) 750ml
