Yalumba the Signature Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Barossa Valley 2002
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.
