Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet red in colour, fruit is at the core of the bouquet,all red and black currants – overlaid with savoury herbs, greenspices, cedar and pipe tobacco. The palate is of sophisticatedprecision with a refined line. Long and textured it captures theconcentrated flavours and presents them with a silken grace.Under all that supple, fleshy muscle, the wine has a strong spine,structured to last and last.
Savor with slow roasted rack of veal, rubbed with sea salt,rosemary and garlic, served with roast potatoes, carrots, parsnipsand steamed green vegetables or chargrilled brussel sprouts withlotus root and sweet marinated tofu.
Blend: 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Shiraz

Critical Acclaim

JH98
Australian Wine Companion
52% Coonawarra cabernet, 27% Barossa cabernet and 21% Barossa shiraz, open-fermented with wild yeast (three days) then cultured yeast. Bright, deep crimson-purple; the bouquet instantly semaphores a glorious profusion of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruits, flavours which are precisely mirrored by the palate. But it’s the way this beautiful wine caresses the mouth that is so special, the tannins polished, the oak judged to perfection.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
This is the first vintage of Yalumba’s new Cabernet/Shiraz-based flagship wine. Deep garnet in color, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz The Caley offers expressive baked blackberries, cherry cordial and blackcurrant jelly notes with suggestions of Chinese five spice, cedar and anise. The palate is built like a brick house, delivering a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support and complement the voluptuous, full-bodied flesh. It offers a very long, layered finish with lingering exotic spice and black berry preserves notes. Give it 3-5 more years in bottle and drink it over the next twenty-five.

Wine Spectator
Elegant, plush and velvety, with expressive, five spice–scented plum and currant flavors that crescendo into more nuanced notes of vanilla, creamy milk chocolate and warm gingerbread. Generous throughout the epic finish. Drink now through 2030.
