Yalumba The Caley Collectors Edition

Yalumba The Caley Collectors Edition

IN HONOUR OF FRED CALEY SMITH 1864 -1913 HORTICULTURIST CORRESPONDENT ADVENTURER

An extremely limited release by Yalumba of their Flagship wine, featuring 2012. 2013, and 2014 vintages in a beautiful display pack. Only ten of these are available and we have secured one of them.

The Caley is the pinnacle of a long winemaking journey of excellence, that rightfully honours one of Yalumba’s most adventurous sons. A blend of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and Barossa Shiraz, The Caley is a classic marriage of two noble varieties and two great Australian wine regions.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON AND SHIRAZ, THE CALEY. PRODUCING ONLY 10 VERTICAL CASES, EACH FEATURES THE FIRST THREE RELEASES FROM THE INAUGURAL 2012 RELEASE. THE CALEY IS THE RESULT OF OUR UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO AUSTRALIA’S OWN
UNIQUE RED WINE STYLE: CABERNET AND SHIRAZ. FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY, CABERNET SHIRAZ HAS BEEN A FOCUS AT YALUMBA AND THE CALEY IS NOW OUR FINEST EXAMPLE, A “SUPER CLARET” OF ANOTHER ERA.
“A landmark first release that will drink well for decades” – James Suckling, 2018
Exclusively available from November 2020.
THE CALEY 2012 JAMES SUCKLING 98 POINTS  JAMES HALLIDAY 98 POINTS

At the time of blending, the winemaking team made the following tasting notes …
Deep garnet red in colour, fruit is at the core of the bouquet, all red and black currants – overlaid with savoury herbs, green
spices, cedar and pipe tobacco. The palate is of sophisticated precision with a refined line. Long and textured it captures the
concentrated flavours and presents them with a silken grace. Under all that supple, fleshy muscle, the wine has a strong spine, structured to last and last. Savour with 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.

Wine for the absolute purist.

Yalumba

“Founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. Today, the winery is owned by fifth generation descendants, Robert & Sam Hill Smith and their families.
Yalumba is determined to create wines with genuine regional character, varietal flavour and individual personality; wines that say remarkable things about some of the world’s most remarkable wine regions.”

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.

Shiraz Blends

Blend Australia’s finest fleshy fruity grape variety with other grape varieties results in some wonderful wines.
