88 pts James Suckling Sept 2020
This has a redcurrant and blueberry nose with some light tobacco, too. The palate has smooth, fine tannins and bright red-fruit flavors. Medium body. Drink now. Screw cap
Since 1987, Yalumba has been one of the winemakers fortunate enough to be a part of the inner Sanctum of Coonawarra. A modern take on a classic regional and varietal stalwart that is fun, flavoursome, stylish and uninhibited.
Our Menzies Estate Vineyard lies in the heart of Coonawarra on the famous terra rossa soil over limestone. This valuable patch of land is the holy grail of all Cabernet purists; with soil vivid red in colour, it is perfect for growing exceptional full-bodied red wines.
Full, intense aromas of blueberries, violets, Satsuma plum, briar and nuances of French oak. The palate is rich and vibrant, bursting with fresh and intense red and blue fruits. Structured and full, the mid-palate is textured with tannins that are fine and long.
