Yalumba Cabernet Sauvignon The Menzies

Wine Details





Winemaker's Notes

Since its inaugural vintage in 1987, The Menzies, named after Sir Robert Menzies, politician and red wine enthusiast, has continued to grow in stature and quality. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used for The Menzies are estate grown at Yalumba's Coonawarra vineyard, an exceptional site in the heart of Coonawarra's legendary terra rossa strip. "The Menzies" is classic Coonawarra, and is characterised by cassis and chocolate flavours across the nose and palate. Two years maturation in French Oak hogsheads has enhanced the soft and velvety tannin palate. This is a definitive read more...premium Cabernet Sauvignon that will reward mid to long term cellaring.
