Since 1987, the Hill-Smith family has counted itself amongst those fortunate enough to produce an estate grown Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. To own a vineyard upon that famous terra rossa soil over limestone is the holy grail of all Cabernet Sauvignon purists. Experimentation, innovation, minimalist intervention and small batch winemaking has resulted in The Menzies’ reputation as one of the best wines of its type to emerge from the region – a wine of longevity, elegance and structure.

Expert Reviews

Good depth and hue to the colour; the complex bouquet and even more complex palate puts cassis fruit, oak and savoury tannins in that order until the very finish, when the fruit makes a resurgent comeback. James Halliday, Rating 95, 29th July 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


Full depth with a red crimson hue.


The bouquet is of medium to full intensity with bright berry and plum fruits with a seaspray tang that is typical of Yalumba The Menzies.


The palate is full bodied and rich, opening with plush red fruits yielding a textured mid-palate and yielding to a lengthy finish.

Food Matching

Enjoy with a pomegranate and fennel glazed rack of Limestone Coast lamb.

Red 5 Star Winery -James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Family-owned and run by Robert Hill Smith, Yalumba has long had a commitment to quality and has shown great vision in its selection of vineyard sites, new varieties and brands. It has always been a serious player at the top end of full-bodied (and full-blooded) Australian reds, and was the pioneer in the use of screwcaps. While its estate vineyards are largely planted to mainstream varieties, it has taken marketing ownership of viognier. However, these days its own brands revolve around the Y Series and a number of stand-alone brands across the length and breadth of SA. Yalumba has been very successful in building its export base. Exports to all major markets.
