Yalumba The Caley Cabernet & Shiraz 2012
The Caley brings together the linear elegance, firm tannins and persistent acid structure of Coonawarra Cabernet with the voluptuous, textural richness of Barossa Shiraz. The Caley is the pinnacle of a long winemaking journey of excellence. Fred Caley Smith, grandson of Yalumba founder Samuel Smith, was a horticulturist who had a profound impact on the development of Yalumba’s vineyards. In the early 1890’s he spent 18 months trekking across the USA, Britain, Europe, the Middle East, India and Sri Lanka, observing and reporting on scientific and horticultural developments. His detailed letters, sent home every few days, underpinned the way their vineyards were managed, and laid the foundations of sustainable viticulture at Yalumba today.
