Product Description

“Doesn't let the side down. Appropriate quality and character given the vintage. Robust blackcurrant, redcurrant and eucalypt flavours with blackberry and clove notes in support. Filigreed tannin. Assured length. Quite enough oomph. There is nothing here not to like” 95 Points James Halliday. "Spicy and savoury influences are distinctive in this seamless and balanced Barossa shiraz. Fine-grained oak understates itself and allows the softly presented fruit to announce its intentions. Sweet dark chocolate and light spicy plum with a substantial yet effortless palate." 92/100 Ray Jordan The grapes were hand picked and crushed to our eight tonne open top stainless steel fermenters. The natural or ‘wild’ yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the sugar fermentation. Cultured winery yeasts were then added to complete this fermentation. Fermentation and cap/skin management was controlled by the Yalumba designed cap plunger. Yalumba ‘The Scribbler’ is a wine with excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity, displaying an aroma of riper style Barossa Cabernet Shiraz. It shows dark plum fruits, black cherry, dark tobacco and hints of leafiness all with the dark undertones of mocha oak. It is a well structured wine with a full and robust palate, displaying the classic red berry fruit flavour of Cabernet Sauvignon and the sweet mid-palate of Shiraz. ‘The Scribbler’ finishes with tannins that have a black olive and red spice tone. This wine is perfect to enjoy now, but will certainly cellar over the next 5-10 years. This Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz wine draws on the strong heritage and unmatched diveristy 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’re-enforces our dedication to this wine style and celebrates its provenance to Barossa.
