    2012 ‘The Caley’ Cabernet & Shiraz, Yalumba – Magnum


    This is the first vintage of Yalumba’s Cabernet/Shiraz-based flagship wine, The Caley.  Named after Fred Caley Smith, grandson of Yalumba founder Samuel Smith, who was a horticulturist that had a profound impact on the development of Yalumba’s vineyards. In the early 1890’s he spent 18 months trekking across the USA, Britain, Europe, the Middle East, India and Sri Lanka, observing and reporting on scientific and horticultural developments. His detailed letters, sent home every few days, underpinned the way the vineyards were managed and laid the foundations of sustainable viticulture at Yalumba today.

    At the time of blending, the winemaking team made the following tasting notes … Deep garnet red in colour, fruit is at the core of the bouquet, all red and black currants – overlaid with savoury herbs, green spices, cedar and pipe tobacco. The palate is of sophisticated precision with a refined line. Long and textured it captures the concentrated flavours and presents them with a silken grace. Under all that supple, fleshy muscle, the wine has a strong spine, structured to last and last.

    The Caley has been sourced from three outstanding vineyards of the Coonawarra and Barossa regions. The Ming D block of the Yalumba Coonawarra vineyard provides 52% of the Cabernet Sauvignon of the blend. This 2.7ha plot was planted in 1992 with two clones of Cabernet Sauvignon selected for structure and depth of flavour. This block differs from the ubiquitous Coonawarra terroir, with a higher content of clay than the other blocks on The Menzies Estate. The Shiraz is sourced from the Burgemeister “Linke Block” between Nuriootpa and Angaston. Planted in 1901, these Shiraz vines run east-west and are on a single wire trellis. The soil is a red-brown earth in the Light Pass loamy fine sand family. There is also a component that comes from the 1971 Yalumba Horseshoe Block in Eden Valley.

  • 2010 Barbera La Court Vigna Veja Nizza, Michele Chiarlo *Limited Edition Presentation Case*Red Wine

    2010 Barbera La Court Vigna Veja Nizza, Michele Chiarlo *Limited Edition Presentation Case*


    This special case contains 6 bottles and 1 Magnum of the 2010 Barbera La Court Vigna Veja Nizza

    This fascinating vineyard is located at the top of the highest hill of the La Court estate and has an exposure of 360 degrees surface area of the vineyard.  Set within a UNESCO World Heritage Site the vineyard that the grapes for this wine came from is only 1 hectare in size and was planted in 1964 so production is very limited and only in the best years.

    2010 was one such year producing an intense and concentrated Barbera.   The nose is elegant yet complex with notes of black fruits, black cherry, wild flowers and sweet spices.  These flavours flow into the palate which is like velvet, silky and fresh.  The classic Barbera acidity is integrated and allows the cassis and black fruit flavours to shine.   The finish is long and persistent.  This wine will improve and last for many years.   Drink now to 2035.

    This is great wine for Agnolotti with a roasted meat sauce, tagliolini with porcini, braised lamb and well-matured cheeses.

    The label for this special Riserva was created by Ugo Nespolo, one of the greatest exponents of Italian Pop Art.
