Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations Masterclass - The Great Australian Blend
Cabernet Shiraz or vice versa, once referred to in Australia as Claret, and pioneered by Yalumba in the 1880s, is uniquely Australian in that it is not an ‘old world’ red wine style nor does it try to mimic any other world wine style.
Typically, but not always, unconstrained by the notion of regionality, the Cabernet Shiraz blend combines the attributes of the two varieties to produce a finer wine than the individual components. Cabernet offers structure, texture and freshness, while the Shiraz’s sweet fruit adds suppleness, generosity and fullness. It is indeed ‘The Great Australian Red’ and it is Australia’s gift to the world of wine.
There are two main styles of the blend, namely the classic powerful fruit and oak style and the more modern and refined fruit-driven styles. You will find in both the complexity, balance and length that these blends are able to generate.
Join Matthew Jukes, UK wine writer and co-founder of the Great Australian Red Wine Show, in the Wynns Gables as we showcase this wonderful wine style that spans all price points, including 2008 Penfolds Bin 620 Cabernet Shiraz, 2013 Yalumba The Caley Cabernet Shiraz and 2013 Lindeman’s Limestone Ridge Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet.
