Yalumba 2016 The Caley Cabernet-Shiraz (South Australia)

Cellar Selection

A blend of Cabernet from Coonawarra, and Shiraz from Barossa, this is a cool-edged bottling of Caley that needs plenty of time in decanter to reveal its charms. It then rewards with layers of heady aromas reminiscent of dark chocolate, mint, violets, fleshy red currant, cherry, wild strawberry and vanilla bean. The palate is powerful but poised and harmonious, the silky fruit cradled by powerful, chalk-and-spice tannins that indicate a long life is still ahead. A black tie, expensive watch kind of a wine from one of Australia's most historic producers. Should cellar until 2037 at least. Christina Pickard
