Yalumba has remained steadfast in its commitment to the Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Some of Australia’s most legendary wines have been made in this style, and at the forefront has been Yalumba, who set the benchmark with ‘The Signature’ series of wine, made continuously since 1962. Yalumba ‘The Scribbler' Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz is a youthful embodiment of ‘The Signature’ which reflects our dedication to this blend and celebrates its heritage.

Winery Tasting Notes
Yalumba 2011 The Scribbler opens with a savoury nose full of earthy tones followed by bloodplums, cedar and smouldering dark aromatics. This is a generous wine with great concentration and a tight frame.
The 2011 growing season really broke the drought. Conditions were generally quite cool to mild, with consistent rainfall throughout the whole season. The fruit from this year retained delicate aromatic qualities and freshness.
Perfect now, but will certainly evolve well over the next 5-10 years.
Combine with a grilled flank steak with roast mushrooms and grilled spicy eggplant.
