Red Wine | Cabernet Sauvignon
Drinking Yalumba Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine 2017 is a real and satisfying experience. Not weighed down by excessive oak, the fruit and sense of place shine through. The tractor depicted on the label is the essential workhorse in the vineyard, which is why they have chosen it to represent this famous Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon opens with violets, sea spray, and fresh Mediterranean herbs with bright, medium to deep crimson color. There is a lovely hit of blueberry, a hint of black tea, and the quintessential Australian note of dried eucalypt. When you first try the wine, there is an initial burst of fresh fruit sweetness, much like blackcurrant pastilles. This sweetness is balanced beautifully with savory notes of fresh herbs and a lovely acid that complements the Danish blueberry opulence.
The wine is typically structural with focused, yet friendly tannins. It is a bright and vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon. A lovely match for this wine is traditional or vegetarian homemade lasagna or sauteed Portobello mushrooms with rosemary and garlic. Enjoy!
