ICONIC COONAWARRA CABERNET FROM FAMED TERRA ROSSA SOILS

A Two Decade Cellar Red Sub $50 Bargain!

New 2015 Vintage Release. James Halliday awarded Yalumba a 5-star winery and this Menzies a 94 point rating.

It's our 23rd Birthday and when the Boss tells you to find Big Deals on Iconic products... you simply cannot go past Yalumba Menzies.

We've been champions of Yalumba Wines since the very beginning of Fine Wine Delivery, and have personally enjoyed this wine since its inception in 1987! Yalumba Wines are consistently made to an outstanding level of quality - which is how they have been awarded their 5-star winery rating from James Halliday. But what we've enjoyed the most is watching Yalumba push the boundaries of that quality year on year with the likes of Menzies, to make wines with such an evolving and multi dimensional palate.

This 2015 example highlights a wonderful vintage throughout Coonawarra that was unusually dry. This meant less fruit on the vines but greater varietal intensity & higher levels of tannin. You will be able to enjoy this higher tannin level by ageing this wine for 20 years minimum if properly cellared.

Teeming with ripe blackfruit and tinged with a bitter chocolate note, it morphs into beautiful secondary characters of savoury leather and tobacco. It spent 20 months hibernating in French Oak, of which a third was brand new. And then it was rounded out for a year in older American, French & Hungarian Hogsheads and Barriques. This investment in oak has created a journey of structure that will take you from boisterous in its youth, right through the tannin spectrum to supple and fine in its later years.
You'd best decanter it for about an hour, if you're enjoying this wine before 2022.


Menzies has always been a great buy for the cellar, offering outstanding quality for the money. And these days it is almost without peer at this price point. You'd pay $60 AUD at the Cellar Door, but at our 23rd Birthday Celebration price of $46.90 a bottle - we suggest you take advantage of this one and get some for the Cellar and your next special occasion!

Description

The Menzies is iconic Australian Cabernet from the Coonawarra, famous for world class Cabernet and its red 'terra rossa' soils. Its formidable reputation evolved over decades and 2015 will grow the legend. Concentrated, classic Cabernet in a deeply evolving palate embraced by velvety tannin and texture. Grand Cabernet to savour from 2022 - 2035+ (please decant for at least an hour prior to 2022).

Smells

Pure cassis, leather and tobacco, with mint, dark chocolate and florals.

Tastes

Concentrated and velvety, it's a complete expression of Cabernet though boisterous in its youth (perfect for those who like big Aussie Reds). If you're patient though, the beauty of the Coonawarra Cabernet will prevail, evolving this wine into the multi-dimensional, harmonious and delicious red we know and love. Enjoy with a herb crusted rack of lamb.
