    Consistent with the warmer vintage in 2003, the lifted nose is supported by ripe black fruit characters on the palate. Very soft tannin structure gives a supple mouth feel, an excellent food wine.

    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.

    Terroir & Site:

    The Cabernet Sauvignon components were sourced entirely from the Barossa Valley, with five main vineyards selected. The vineyards of Trevor Fromm, near Williamstown, the Brooks vineyard at Gomersal, the Cowham Light Pass vineyard and the Crown Village vineyard, in the Krondorf foothills. These components all provide the rich lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics and palate structure that The Signature is known for the majority of the Shiraz comes from the Schiller family vineyard north of Nuriootpa on the Barossa Valley floor. Four blocks were selected with vines planted between 1925 and 1969. These blocks provide the Shiraz sweetness, fullness, depth and add many layers of complexity.

     

    Winemaking & Viticulture:

    Dry and warm conditions during the 2013 growing season produced Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz crops with smaller bunches and berries full of concentrated flavour. All parcels of fruit were fermented separately in either eight-tonne open fermenters or six-tonne static potter fermenters using wild yeasts. These wild yeasts have helped contribute individual complexities to the wine, creating richness and fine textures. 

     

    Tasting notes: 

    The colour of The Signature 2013 is almost impenetrable, this is a wine of aromatics and fineness with great depth of concentration. Showing dark red powdery currants and the leafy freshness of mint and cool spices, the aromatics are complex Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is all about Shiraz with dark plum, licorice and a potpourri of berry fruits, round, rich and complete with an ironstone depth of tannin, giving the support that will take this through the cellar for a very long time. Not to be opened for at least 5 years, but if you weaken, enjoy with a char grilled rump steak with all the extras.

    The stunning 2015 vintage provided us wonderful fruit and varietal characters to work with. We believe these three varieties together deliver full layers and length of palate. We selected Cabernet fruit from the Orchard block, Pig and Pony, Oakley and Bond blocks, the Petit Verdot from OTC and Katunga vineyards, with the Merlot parcel from Johnston Prolific. This elegant yet intense wine exhibits a bouquet of lifted blackcurrant, violets and mint, with floral notes and hints of red guava. With the palate showing intense cassis, red currant and musk, enhanced by traces of quince, red capsicum and subtle cedary oak.
    Approachable now with aerating or will develop gracefully with correct cellaring.

    A rich and luscious fruit-filled palate of mixed berry flavours. The Cabernet provides excellent fine tannin structure and the Merlot adds spice and violet perfume, with generous mouthfeel. Subtle vanilla and toasty oak underpins a vibrant and smooth finish.
