Yalumba The Menzies 2004
Product Details

 

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2004 Coonawarra Spring was mild with slightly above average rainfall enabling the development of healthy vine canopies. January was dry and unexpectedly cool, whilst February returned to more normal summer conditions, with March being pleasantly dry with cool nights and warm days. These conditions allowed the grapes to retain intense Cabernet Sauvignon flavours with a natural balance between grape sugars and acids. Yalumba 'The Menzies' 2004 is deep crimson magenta in colour. A very complex nose offers nuances of violet, bay leaf, black olive and oyster shell. The palate opens with mocha and tapenade supported by damsen plum. Full bodied with fine tannins, this stunning wine finishes fresh and balanced. 'The Menzies' is crafted to be enjoyed with full flavoured foods and complements roasted meats and piquant cheese amongst many delicious dishes.
