Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Riverina New South Wales
The philosophy at [yellow tail] is to make great quality wines that are also great fun to drink. Yellow Tail is a Cabernet Merlot that's very easy to get accustomed to. A soft, plum and cherry flavoured wine with scents of black currant, supple oak and fragrant spice. Immediately approachable and a pure pleasure when served alongside meat and tomato pastas. But, if you want to cut to the chase, here's the go. Drink [yellow tail], share it, swill it and explore it. And, while it's seriously good wine, remember to just kick back and simply enjoy it.
Australia's most popular label, [yellow tail] is enjoyed in every corner of the globe. Over two million glasses of [yellow tail] are consumed each and every day! The secret to success is the quality fruit, grown to the most stringently managed vineyards. The warmer climes of Riverina encourage development of big, concentrated flavours. Cabernet and Merlot grapes are crushed and the stems removed. Fruit is fermented on skins in contact with oak under a strict regimen of temperature controls, to ensure maximum retention of varietal character and tannin extraction. Yellow Tail is estate grown, vinified and bottled at the Yenda wineworks, ensuring it's handled to the most exacting standards from vine to glass.
Bright crimson colour. Bouquets of violet and currant, mudcake and prune. A mouthfilling palate with luscious blackberry and plum characters complexed by herb and peppermint, infused by light sweet oak and supported by tender tannins. Combines the bramble of Cabernet with the smoothness of Merlot, a dinkum Australian style of wine. Savour [yellow tail] over braised meats and barbeques, roast ham or tasty cheese.
