SKU: YALCALCAB16
The Yalumba The Caley Cabernet Shiraz 2016 is the pinnacle of a long winemaking journey of excellence, that rightfully honours Yalumba’s most adventurous son, Fred Caley Smith.Very deep, dense red. Typical Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon aromas ofBright florals, cherry, oyster shell, leafy stalks then into red currant. The palate reveals a very defined wine, cool and inviting. Medium to full depth with a densely layered structure and warmth delivering a prominent yet silky tannin profile.

”69% Coonawarra Menzies Ming D Block cabernet sauvignon, 25% Barossa Valley Nuriootpa shiraz planted 1901, 6% Eden Valley shiraz planted 1971. Wild ferment to start. Matured 21 months in 25% new French oak barriques and hogsheads. Yalumba began blending Coonawarra cabernet with Barossa shiraz more than a half century ago. This is one of the greatest expressions of this great Australian blend of recent decades. Perfect, compact, fragrant blackcurrant and blackberry fruit depth pauses time as it hovers motionless for minutes, propelled by the most intricate, chalk mineral framework of perfectly interlocked fruit and French oak tannins. A vintage to hark back to for another half century yet.”
