SKU: YALMENCAB18
In 1992 the Hill-Smith family counted themselves amongst those fortunate enough to own a vineyard upon the famous Coonawarra terra rossa soil over limestone. Experimentation, innovation, minimalist intervention and small batch winemaking has resulted in The Menzies’ reputation as a wine of longevity, elegance and structure.

Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

Region

Coonawarra

Size

750ml

Wine Style

Red - big, bold, full-bodied

Palate

The palate is restrained yet complex. Whilst the wine is youthful and structural, there is blueberry, violet and chocolate with lovely fruit flavour and very fine tannins, giving the drinker an insight to the ageability of this wine. With decanting in its youth it is enjoyable as an elegant fullbodied red wine

”Another beautiful release. Mint, mulberry and blackcurrant flavours drift with tobacco and forest herbs. It's a cooling cabernet but a ripe one, fluid and refreshing but firm and solid. This wine needs to be stashed in a cool, dark place for at least a handful of years to start showing its best.”
