Yalumba The Menzies Cabernet Sauvignon

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Coonawara , SA
Vintage: 2016

In 1992 the Hill-Smith family counted themselves amongst those fortunate enough to own a vineyard upon the famous Coonawarra terra rossa soil over limestone. Experimentation, innovation, minimalist intervention and small batch winemaking has resulted in The Menzies’ reputation as a wine of longevity, elegance and structure. A classic full-bodied expression of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark cherry red with a crimson hue. The bouquet is elegant and inviting, notes of cedar and licorice combine with rich, ripe cassis, violets and the quintessential Coonawarra “sea spray” note. The palate opens with a burst of cassis and mocha. It is structural, yet generous, dark and brooding with restraint and the promise of enjoyment for years to come. The tannin are sublime, giving an insight to the age-ability of this wine, yet in its youth, it is enjoyable as an elegant full bodied red wine. Matured for 22 months in 30% new French hogsheads and barriques, balance in 1 year and older French, Hungarian and American hogsheads & barriques. Enjoyable now or cellar for ten to fifteen years. Decant and enjoy with a chargrilled rib eye on the bone or porcini mushroom, thyme and quinoa risotto.
