Yalumba The Caley Barossa Valley 2016
The Caley is the culmination of a long winery of excellent quality that rightly honors 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 major Australian wine regions. It's 5 times in Yalumba's history that they come up with a release of this wine Yalumba The Caley.
Yalumba, Australia's oldest family - owned wine company, was founded back in 1849 by Samuel Smith in the Barossa Valley of South Australia.
Barossa Valley is located approx. 1 hour drive from South Australia's capital Adelaide. The mild and humid winters as well as the dry and hot summers combined with an average rainfall of 500-750 mm make the Barossa Valley an ideal area for viticulture.
Yalumba is a native word meaning "all the earth around it", and Yalumba continues to operate from the same location in the Barossa Valley, where Samuel Smith founded his vineyard back in 1849.
The wine company has been owned by the same family for over 170 years, and since its inception, the Hill-Smith family has been actively involved in the local area of the Barossa Valley as well as throughout the Australian wine industry.
Ever since Yalumba's first vines were planted in 1849, the Hill-Smith family has been committed to sustainable practices, and over the years, Yalumba has received over 40 national and international recognitions for sustainability.
Yalumba does not use animal products in winemaking and is therefore capable of delivering a wide range of vegan-friendly wines.
The 6th generation of the Hill-Smith family is on the rise and is already involved in Yalumba. But today it is the 5th generation of the Hill-Smith family that heads Yalumba, where in addition to the largest solar cell system in an Australian wine company so far, they have their own "vineyard" and a working cooper workshop.
Yalumba is an iconic brand and makes amazing wines with individual character traits and lots of identity.
