A full bodied, rich and intense red Cabernet Sauvignon from the Menzies in the heart of the Coonawarra terra rossa country. Bursting with bright berry and plum fruits. Stunning!


Five generations and 167 years later Yalumba, Australia’s most historic family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world.
"Full depth with a red crimson hue. The bouquet is of medium to full intensity with bright berry and plum fruits with a seaspray tang that is typical of Yalumba The Menzies. The palate is full bodied and rich, opening with plush red fruits yielding a textured mid-palate and yielding to a lengthy finish" (Ref: www.yalumba.com)
Enjoy with a pomegranate and fennel glazed rack of Limestone Coast lamb.
