The Society's Australian Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

4.200000000 star rating 5 Reviews
Made for The Wine Society by Yalumba, one of the great names of Australian wine, this shows exactly why this variety has been such a hit Down Under for so long. The nose is juicy, generous and bright with blackcurrant notes. The palate is full-bodied and fresh, with black and red-fruit character and great structure.

Yalumba

The Yalumba Wine Company is Australia’s oldest family-owned winery. Currently run by Robert and Sam Hill Smith, the winery is situated in the Barossa Valley where there are plantings of some of the world’s oldest vines. Yalumba was founded by a British brewer, Samuel Smith, who emigrated to Australia with his family from Dorset in 1847. In 1849, Smith purchased a 30 acre block of land on the edge of a settlement and planted his first vineyards. He named his property ‘Yalumba’, an indigenous Australian word meaning ‘all the land around.’ Yalumba now owns over 1000 acres of vineyards in the Barossa, Clare and Eden valleys, as well owning vines in Coonawarra and as buying in grapes from selected growers, some of whom they have been working with for four or more generations.

This property is a beacon of hands-on winemaking. No aspect of the process is left to chance, as evidenced by the master coopers crafting oak barrels on site and a vine nursery where both new and established varieties are propagated. Yalumba is quite unusual in making wines at all price levels from entry level to fine and sought-after and The Society regularly follows premium labels Signature, The Menzies and Mesh labels, as well as everyday classics including Heggies Chardonnay.

Robert Hill-Smith, the fifth generation, has led Yalumba forward, innovating and inventing nto the 21st century without compromise, cementing Yalumba’s reputation for high-quality wines, authenticity, and integrity. Robert pioneered ...

The main challenger to shiraz and grenache in Australian reds is the world’s most widely planted variety: cabernet sauvignon. While other countries may spring to mind as cabernet specialists first , Australia has some world-beaters , with top cuvées from the likes of Penfolds, Mount Mary, Moss Wood, Wynns, Yarra Yering and Cullen all up there . There’s value to be found, too, not least in the pure, ripe cassis stylings of the Wine Society’s own-label, blended by the excellent family producer Yalumba .
