Our special this week is the 2018 Yalumba Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon Sanctum (Coonawarra, Australia) – $18.99 (regularly $23.49).

Established in 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s most historic family owned wine company. It remains fiercely independent and extremely progressive through the generational ownership by the Hill-Smith family.

Yalumba’s longevity and continued success is a result of their dedication, patience, collaboration and progressive thinking. They embrace minimalist approach to utilizing the natural terroir to craft wines with individual character and a sense of purpose, a spirit to reinvest in the land that it grows upon. It is committed to sharing stories of provenance and history gathered over more than 168 years of history of family winemaking.

At the inner ‘sanctum’of Coonawarra, on the prized terra rossa soil, lies Yalumba’s Coonawarra estate, The Menzies Vineyard. This valuable patch of land is the holy grail of all Cabernet purists with soil vivid red in colour, it is perfect for growing exceptional full-bodied red wines.

Deep crimson in colour with a magenta hue. Rich, opulent, aromas of blueberry and chocolate with notes of sweet fruit, vanilla and spice. The palate displays ripe, rich fruits; blackcurrant and blueberry, with a lovely umami presence.
