The New Super wine from Yalumba has been this years most anticipated wine event.
Called ‘The Caley’, the wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grown at the Menzies estate in Coonawarra and two plots of old vine Shiraz in the Barossa (Yalumba’s Horseshoe Vineyard and the Burgemeister Linke Block).
The wine is named after Fred Caley Smith, the grandson of Yalumba’s founder Samuel Smith, a famed horticulturist who had a “profound impact” on the development of the estate’s orchards and vineyards. He bolstered his knowledge of viti- and arboriculture further over the course of an 18-month trip in 1893-94 to Europe, the US, Middle East, India and Sri Lanka.
Winemaker and fifth generation owner of Yalumba, Robert Hill-Smith, said: “The Caley is the pinnacle of a long winemaking journey seeking excellence – a ‘super-claret’ that rightfully honours one of Yalumba’s most adventurous sons.
“It is the result of an unwavering commitment by Yalumba to Australia’s own unique red wine style – Cabernet & Shiraz – from the Galway Clarets of the 1940s, through the ‘Signature’ and ‘FDR1A’ that started in the 1960s and 1970s and ‘The Reserve’ that was created in the 1990s.”
Speaking of the wine itself he said it combined the, “linear elegance, firm tannins and persistent acid structure of Coonawarra Cabernet with the voluptuous, textural richness of Barossa Shiraz.”
