55% Cabernet Sauvignon & 45% Shiraz
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz parcels were fermented separately in open fermenters. Indigenous or ‘wild’ yeasts, naturally present on the grape skins, initiated the fermentation to contribute complexity, richness and fine texture. Cultured winery yeast was then added to complete fermentation. Gentle plunging and pulsing of the skins was undertaken to achieve the right balance of colour, tannin and phenolic extraction. The Caley was matured for 20 months in a mix of 41% new French barriques and 59% in older French barriques and hogsheads. The barrels were all made and seasoned at the Yalumba Cooperage. After bottling, the wine was cellared for a further 36 months and released in 2018.
Intriguing, fine and complex aromas – cool fresh spices and cedar overlaid with a touch of currants. A wine of precision and depth with a line of Coonawarra mint through its soul. Rich and textured, the fine tannins provide excellent length. Built to spend many, many years in the cellar, it will drink beautifully in 2033 and beyond. Savour with a slow roasted rack of veal, rubbed with sea salt, rosemary and garlic, served with roast potatoes, carrots, parsnips and steamed green vegetables or chargrilled brussel sprouts with lotus root and sweet marinated tofu."
So much going on here, a wine definitively in the zone of ‘complex’ but also ‘seamless’ and quietly ‘powerful’ and for sure ‘long, regal, refined’, and if you like bold, powerful red wines that hold tight and true, then you’re in the zone of a ‘serious’ wine. The flavour rolls distinctly and densely across the palate but feels lifted and tightened with chew of ropes of tannin. Freshness is inherent too. All dark fruits, tobacco, earth, clove and cedar – a seamless mesh. It’s a very, very good wine for its ilk and an emphatic statement about Yalumba, on many levels."
