Six generations, and 160 years later, Yalumba remains a hero of the region.

Best cabernet ive found 25 years and Organic safee

5 stars

Been drinking wine for 25 years around the world in different countries. Hands down this is best cabernet ive tasted in 25 years delicious full of flavour. Hardys and lindlemans were my favourite but not organic. Organic has no chemicals sprayed on grapes and seeds are non gmo and there is normal bio diversity in the soil unlike non organic doul is poisoned. Hence the delicious flavour organic. My new favourite wine. I find Australia wines to be the best for flavour for me.

Not to my taste
