Yalumba ‘The Scribbler’ Cabernet Shiraz 2015


There’s something wonderful about the continuity Yalumba possesses. The most obvious is the family ownership of five generations since 1849, the longest in Australia. The family have inspired the staff to be long-serving too. And many of the Yalumba wines have a pedigree stretching back decades. The interconnection of the brands and labels also showcases the continuity that Yalumba uniquely has. The ‘flagship’ wine is ‘The Signature’ a true Australian classical blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, showcasing the best of the Barossa, made continuously since 1962, and each vintage honouring a person who has contributed to Yalumba. ‘The Scribbler’ is the more accessible fun-take by Yalumba of ‘The Signature’ with its name, hand-written label and irreverent presentation. But don’t be mislead into thinking this is not a serious wine. Just as the ‘Patchwork’ Shiraz is to ‘The Octavius’ Shiraz, ‘The Scribbler’ is to ‘The Signature’, and some excellent wine has been released under this label. www.yalumba.com
