"It falls safe into the hands of excellence, It has the shape, complexity, fruit power, overall balance and then the length to make its price look justifiable. It’s going to age like a absolute beauty. Both intricate and firm tannins, ripped with blackcurrant, lightened by mint and slipped with undergrowth and cedar wood character. Nothing is overdone and yet everything has a presence, a power. Cork". Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

"... the most approachable yet... great concentration and admirable length."
A blend of 82% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Barossa Shiraz, Yalumba's 2014 The Caley leans heavily toward Cabernet on the nose, boasting scents of mint, cassis and cocoa. In the mouth, the Shiraz helps round out the full-bodied palate and lends a velvety edge to the considerable tannins. This third vintage of Yalumba's new flagship is the most approachable yet, finishing with plush richness, great concentration and admirable length.
"The most Coonawarra-like of the three releases" The third vintage of this new addition to the Yalumba portfolio. Super concentrated blend of 82 per cent Coonawarra cabernet and the remainder Barossa shiraz from vines planted in 1901. The most Coonawarra-like of the three releases, with its chalky fine silky tannins and effortless long plate profile. It gets about 40 per cent new oak but the intensity of the fruit balances it perfectly.
96 Points. Decanter
From Block D of Yalumba’s Menzies vineyard, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon (82%) drives this third iteration of the estate's flagship wine. Impeccable, fine-grained tannins and scintillating blackcurrant and red cherry fruit, with cedar, black tea and tobacco lift, give line and length. Barossa Shiraz (from two 1970s-planted vineyards in the eastern ranges and Eden Valley) augments, with concentrated layers of spiced plum, chocolate and earth. Aged for 20 months in French barriques, 40% new. Sarah Ahmed, Decanter, 18 November 2019
