The Caley is Yalumba’s flagship wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz blend, reflecting the long and unwavering commitment of Australia’s oldest family-owned winemaker to this classic Australian blend. The Caley is named for Fred Caley Smith, grandson of Yalumba founder Samuel Smith.

The Caley combines Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and old-vine Barossa Shiraz, matured in Yalumba-coopered French oak.

Released five years from vintage, with three years of bottle-age, The Caley is designed to claim, in time, a place alongside the most famous Australian reds. While deceptively attractive in its youth, the wine is built for the long haul, bringing together seamlessly the linear elegance, firm tannins and persistence of Cabernet with the richness and texture of old-vine Shiraz.

Grapes sourced from Coonawarra and Barossa

Critic tasting note: "The most serene note of menthol hovers above notes pf graphite, plum and berry. There is a perfumed streak of hayflowers and crushed, dried yarrow. The palate then redoubles on that lovely savouriness and adds beautiful white pepper notes to juicy plum and berry compote notes that have a lovely lick of smoky vanilla. The fine tannins seem to frame immense juiciness." - 95/100, Falstaff

Drinking Window: 2023-2043

Yalumba The Caley Cabernet Shiraz 2013 features intriguing aromas that are fine and complex, such as cool fresh spices and cedar overlaid with a touch of currants. The palate is deep and precise with Coonawarra mint through its soul. Rich textu the fine tannins provide excellent length.
