"The Menzies" is classic Coonawarra, and is characterised by cassis and chocolate flavours across the nose and palate. Two years maturation in French Oak hogsheads has enhanced the soft and velvety tannin palate. This is a definitive premium Cabernet Sauvignon that will reward mid to long term cellaring.

Yalumba The Menzies

Since its inaugural vintage in 1987, The Menzies, named after Sir Robert Menzies, politician and red wine enthusiast, has continued to grow in stature and quality. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used for The Menzies are estate grown at Yalumba's Coonawarra vineyard, an exceptional site in the heart of Coonawarra's legendary terra rossa strip.

"The Menzies" is classic Coonawarra, and is characterised by cassis and chocolate flavours across the nose and palate. Two years maturation in French Oak hogsheads has enhanced the soft and velvety tannin palate. This is a definitive premium Cabernet Sauvignon that will reward mid to long term cellaring.

The bouquet is powerful cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of violet, briar, dark mocha couverture and a hint of dry leaf forest floor. On the palate, The Menzies is rich and full bodied showing bright, ripe fruits of cassis and dark berries with savoury plums, with sea-spray notes evident which are typical of The Menzies vineyard. The mid palate is full of structure and finishes with lingering powdery tannins. The 2008 Menzies Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasure to drink now though it has been made for the long haul and will cellar excellently.
