Tasting Note

Yalumba The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon hails from the heart of Australia's legendary Coonawarra wine region, renowned for its distinctive terra rossa soil. This iconic Cabernet Sauvignon exudes elegance and power, a testament to the unique terroir and Yalumba's wine making expertise.

Appearance:  The wine displays a deep crimson hue, alluring with its intensity and hinting at the depth of flavour to come.

Nose: Upon swirling, The Cigar releases a captivating bouquet of ripe blackcurrants, cassis, and subtle hints of dark chocolate. Delicate notes of cedar, mint, and a touch of eucalyptus lend an intriguing complexity to the aroma profile.

Palate:  The palate is where this Cabernet Sauvignon truly shines. Rich and velvety, bursting with concentrated black fruit flavours that mingle with warm spice notes.  Hints of licorice and tobacco add layers of depth. The tannins are beautifully integrated, providing structure and a lingering finish marked by subtle earthiness.

Food Pairings: Yalumba The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold wine that calls for equally robust flavours. Here are some excellent food pairings to consider:

  • Hearty Red Meat Dishes: Grilled lamb chops with rosemary, a classic roast beef with rich gravy, or a slow-cooked beef short rib are all superb complements to the wine's structure and savouriness.
  • Aged Cheeses: Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with mature cheddar, aged Gouda, or a bold blue cheese. The richness of the cheese harmonises beautifully with the wine's intensity.
  • Rich Sauces: Dishes featuring tomato-based sauces with herbs and spices, or a decadent mushroom ragu, elevate both the wine and the flavours of the food.
  • Chocolate Desserts: For a touch of indulgence, pair The Cigar with dark chocolate truffles, a flourless chocolate cake, or even a spiced chocolate mousse.

Beyond the Tasting:

Yalumba The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon is not just a wine to be enjoyed on its own; it's an experience that embodies the spirit of Coonawarra.  Named after the unique cigar-shaped strip of terra rossa soil that defines the region, this wine carries a sense of place and history. It's a testament to Yalumba's commitment to crafting wines that showcase the best of Australian viticulture.
