The wine sees neutral French and American oak that seasons the pure fruit. There are aromas of violets, black current, dark cherry and a mineral note.
These elements come together on the palate with soft tannins and a touch of bittersweet chocolate that follow through with fine length.
The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year.
These Aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry,and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.

Strong bright rim with a deep red core. The lifted bouquet of this Cabernet is reminiscent of red cherries and hints of blackcurrant. This wine shows a little more herbaceous character, although the typical McLaren Vale dark chocolate character is still evident. The oak is particularly attractive, showing some subtle cinnamon and a hint of char.
The palate shows rich, sweet blackberry and chocolate, with the tannin structure tight. The middle palate is full and is followed by a drying, elegant finish. With flavours that are very persistent and a tight structure, this wine shows potential for ageing well.
Deep red central core with vibrant purple rim. Showing typical McLaren Vale Cabernet aromas of spicy blackberry and chocolate together with mint and dark cherries complexed by lifted oak char and cinnamon. Intense black fruits and cherries are supported by firm acidity and enveloping tannin structure giving great balance to the depth.
The taste has mouth filling rich fruit; again berries and currants carrying through with vibrance and superb extension. The finish has the finest grain of tannins, velvety with the wood and fruit extracts beautifully matched and textured.
The Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine originates from wines planted in 1972 above the Lime Cave, on the crest of the estate vineyard. The intense concentrated dark berry and mint, lingering tanins and the finely balanced nature of the wine reflects the individual terrior of the McLaren Vale.
This wine exudes the elegance and purity of a McLarenVale Cabernet. The nose is refined with aromas of blackcurrant and plum fruit. In the mouth the fruit is rich, harmonious and integrated. The palate is layered, with a beautiful delicate fine structure and a generous smooth finish.
The fruit is hand-picked at optimum ripeness-flavour, gently crushed, open-fermented and matured in a combination of French Oak and American Oak.
The black/purple tinted colour of this wine is followed by a pure liquorice and wild berry fruit nose. The palate is very firm in structure with fine powdery tannins, warm, rounded mouth-feel and long, dry finish.
Deep and intense, the wine displays full palate weight with powerful fruit and soft American oak which was hand-coopered at Yalumba - a wine made for longevity, very much The Signature style.
