According to Robert Hill Smith of Yalumba, this wine reminds of Australian wines of yesteryears bringing with it the same excitement which those wines used to hold. James Halliday stated it as ‘a truly magnificient wine’, scoring 98 points on the charts, which can be termed as close to perfect. Yalumba has also partnered with glassware company Riedal to produce the first cabernet shiraz glass with the the wine’s launch.
