Yalumba ‘The Menzies’ Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 15-Aug-2017
Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with some garnet on the edge. The nose is very concentrated and intense with rich, ripe aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and cassis, a little mint and fragrant, lifted herbs, a touch of eucalypt, unfolding interwoven layers of fruit and pencilly oak. The palate is sweetly rich and luscious, the fruit melded with ripe, substantial tannin structure, revealing layers of blackberries, blackcurrants, cassis liqueur and mint, revealing nuances of eucalypt and cedary, pencilly oak. The fruit is supported by strong, ripe, fine tannin extraction and ripe acidity that carries the wine to a sweet and long finish. 10-15+ years. Fruit from ‘The Menzies’ vineyard Coonawarra, vines 35 y.o., fermented to 14.1% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 34% new French hogsheads and barriques, and 2% new Hungarian oak hogsheads. A vineyard selection, undergoing very vigorous selection to produce a reduced quantity of wine, around 8.000 cases. 19.0/20 Aug 2017 RRP $52.50
