The Cigar is a name coined by Coonawarra Vignerons to describe the regions’ unique cigar-shaped strip of rich red, terra rossa soil. Home to some of Australia’s most famous vineyards, the secret of Coonawarra lies in the intimate bond between the terra rossa soil, limestone layers, pure artisan water and a long, cool ripening season. Fortunate to be part of this iconic place, Yalumba salutes the region’s pioneers and those privileged to inherit its future. Deep red to crimson in colour. A perfumed wine, displaying spice notes, lavender and violets, with fruit aromatics of warm strawberries, blackberries, and the quintessential note of sea-spray that the region is known for. Peppery, fresh and alive with youthful tannins, the moderate to long palate has intense red-purple cassis fruit. A delicious wine with all the hallmarks of Coonawarra Cabernet. Matured for 16 months in new French oak barriques (22%), one year old French oak barriques and hogsheads (31%), balance in older French oak. Enjoy now or cellar for 7 - 10 years.
