Yalumba ‘Y Series’ South Australia Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Oct-2018
Dark deep, ruby-red colour with black-purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is fine and fresh in expression with intense and well-concentrated aromas of pure blackcurrant fruit entwined with mint and dark herbs, with some peppery notes. This is youthfully fresh and sits near the cool-spectrum, but shows good vinosity. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in expression with a fine and moderately taut core of lively blackcurrant fruit with notes of mint and herbs and some pepper. The fruit is vibrant, somewhat coolish in expression, with fine-grained tannin support and crisp acidity that carries the wine to a lingering finish. This is a taut, finely expressed Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant and herb flavours along with fine tannin and crisp acidity. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes over the next 3+ years. South Australia fruit fermented in static and rotary fermenters to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 3-5 days on skins post ferment. Winemaker: Natalie Cleghorn. 16.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $16.95
