2016 Yalumba The Menzies Cabernet Sauvignon
- Coonawarra SA
- Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawarra Menzies Estate vineyard, a majority of the grapes are from vines planted in 1994, 1995 and 1996, with smaller parcels from 1974 and 1975. Matured for 21 months in 30% new French and Hungarian hogsheads and French barriques.
A deep and lush wine, full with aromas of fresh rosemary, mulberry, violets and exotic spices. The palate is complex, with layers of blackcurrant, bitter chocolate and mulberries, wrapped in divine tannins and a lovely sweet, dark fruit finish.
