In one of the most hotly anticipated wine releases of the year, Yalumba has unveiled The Caley Coonawarra & Barossa Cabernet & Shiraz 2012. This important wine is the pinnacle of a Yalumba's 150+ years of winemaking experience. 

The Caley, a blend featuring both Coonawarra and Barossa fruit, honours Fred Caley Smith, the grandson of Yalumba's founder Samuel Smith; a horticulturist who had a profound impact on the development of Yalumba's orchards and vineyards

The Caley is a blend of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and Barossa Shiraz - a classic marriage of two noble varieties and two great Australian wine regions. James Halliday has called The Caley a “truly magnificent wine”, scoring it 98 points. “It’s the way this beautiful wine caresses the mouth that is so special, the tannins polished, the oak judged to perfection". He also notes "Its packaging outdoes any red wine in the Australian market today." 

Presented in superb presentation cases this important wine has set a new benchmark for Australian red wine.

Description

Sam Kim writes "100/100. Exquisitely composed, perfectly poised and impeccably structured, this is an exceptional wine that wine lovers of Yalumba have been waiting for 168 years. The compelling bouquet shows dark fruit, cocoa, clove, bay leaf, almond and violet aromas with nuances of black olive and truffle. The oak infusion is discreet and seamless. It is concentrated and beautifully weighted on the palate, and exhibits silky texture, fleshy mouthfeel and loads of fine, polished tannins. The wine is pristine, yet spectacularly complex, and flows effortlessly through the palate, gradually expanding to a gloriously long, engaging finish. 2012 The Caley is a blend of Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon and Barossa shiraz, matured in new and seasoned French oak barrels for 22 months".
