Yalumba ‘The Caley’ Coonawarra and Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz 2012

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 15-Aug-2017
Black-red colour with a near impenetrable heart and youthful purple hues. The nose is very frim with intense, ripe, but vibrant and youthfully lively aromas of blackcurrant fruit with cassis liqueur, liquorice, spices and black plum nuances. Layers of aromatics unfold with sweetly ripe black fruit detail, spices and refined oak. On palate the vibrancy and vitality of the fruit is the feature, with sweetly rich, lusciously ripe and gorgeously layers flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with succulent plum, spice, liquorice and chocolate notes. The mouthfeel is exceptionally vibrant and expressed with great energy, the fruit underlined by very fine-grained, flowery tannin structure. There is still much to resolve, but this has incredible balance and accessibility The wine flows with drive, energy, vibrancy, intensity and finesse. A statement wine of great finesse, interest and intensity. 20 years possible 52% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘Ming D’ block, 27% Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon, and 21% Barossa Shiraz from the Burgemeister ‘Link Block’ with Eden Valley fruit, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 22 months in 31% new French barriques and hogsheads. 5,900 bottles made. 20.0/20 Aug 2017 RRP $390.00
