The Cigar is a name coined by Coonawarra Vignerons to describe the regions unique cigar-shaped strip of rich red, terra rossa soil. Home to some of Australias most famous vineyards, the secret of Coonawarra lies in the intimate bond between the terra rossa soil, limestone layers, pure artisan water and a long, cool ripening season. Fortunate to be part of this iconic place, Yalumba salutes the regions pioneers and those privileged to inherit its future.

”92/8% cabernet sauvignon/malbec. Matured 19 months in (20% new and 10% 1yo) French oak barriques and hogsheads. A terrific vintage for the great Menzies vineyard. Textbook, crunchy blackcurrants and blackberries are wrapped in cedary, fine-boned French oak, nuanced with roast coffee bean and high-cocoa dark chocolate. Firm, fine-grained tannins unite with vibrant acidity on a finish of fantastic energy and endurance. Now under screw cap, every detail is upheld.”
