K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "On 12 May 2017 Yalumba launched the most impressive wine in our 168-year history - The Caley. Named in honour of Fred Caley Smith, grandson of Yalumba’s founder Samuel Smith. Fred was a horticulturist who had a profound impact on the development of Yalumba’s orchards and vineyards. He is best remembered for a ground-breaking research journey he undertook in 1893 and 1894 to the USA, UK, Europe, the Middle East, Sri Lanka and India.The 29-year-old’s detailed and poignant letters to his father, sent home every few days, were collected and kept in the Yalumba archive and over subsequent generations they have provided inspiration and encouragement for Yalumba’s outward looking international handshake. The Caley is sourced from Yalumba’s own Menzies Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards on Coonawarra’s famed Terra Rossa cigar strip, and two old Shiraz vineyards in the Barossa (Yalumba’s Horseshoe vineyard and the Burgemeister Linke Block), The Caley is structured for longevity. The Caley brings together the linear elegance, firm tannins and persistent acid structure of Coonawarra Cabernet with the voluptuous, textural richness of Barossa Shiraz."
