Yalumba The Reserve 1998
Product Details

 

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

The 1997/1998 growing season produced above average rainfall and a warm to hot summer. This resulted in a slightly early onset of vintage. Grapes for Yalumba The Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 1998 were sourced from old Cabernet Sauvignon vines producing very low crops of intensely flavoured small berries and very old Barossa Shiraz bushvines. The wine was then matured in oak barrels uniquely coopered by Yalumba.
