The Wine:
The Caley is the pinnacle of a long winemaking journey of excellence and rightfully honours Yalumba’s most adventurous son, Fred Caley Smith. A blend of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and Barossa Shiraz, The Caley is a classic marriage of two noble varieties and two great Australian wine regions. 

Deep, dark, purple-red. The nose is bright, intriguing, fine and complex. A touch of currants, leaf and herb followed by cool, fresh spices, iodine and cedar. The palate offers a mouthful of richness, texture and depth, yet cool with a line of Coonawarra peppermint. The acidity and fine tannins show their support and precision. This is built to spend many years in the cellar, The Caley takes time to reveal its true character. The wine will drink beautifully in 5-30 years plus.
