If you are looking for a Christmas present for a lover of serious Australian wine then look no further. This is the new release of a classic Australian blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz with the signature of long-time Yalumba winemaker Louisa Rose. Yalumba's history dates back to 1849 and since 1962 each release of the Signature has been dedicated to people who have "made a significant contribution to the culture and traditions of Yalumba". This is the 47th Signature and probably one of the finest - well done winemaker Kevin Glastonbury. This vintage is dark and inky, complex and intense and is drinking well in its youth but will cellar well. Pair with beef bourgignon or fricasee of mushrooms. $65. www.yalumba.com.
