Yalumba The Reserve 2002
Product Details

 

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

To categorise the 2002 Reserve, the finest parcels of wine were selected from the best blocks as they were fermenting. Indigenous or ‘wild’ yeasts, naturally present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the fermentation. These ‘wild’ ferments have helped contribute to the individual complexities of the wine, creating richness and fine textures. The Cabernet component was sourced mainly from Eden Valley, with the Shiraz sourced from Barossa Valley. Concentrated deep red in colour, the nose is full of deep red fruits with suggestions of mint and spicy cedary oak. Powerfully constructed and concentrated, the palate is thick and ripe with juicy dark fruits combined with creamy oak, underpinned by velvety smooth tannins. The Reserve is a wine that should be drinking at its optimum in 8-12 years from vintage.
