First taste: Top Yalumba wines from latest releases

Yalumba has released the second vintage of its flagship wine, The Caley 2013, and Decanter expert Sarah Ahmed was among the first to taste it alongside several other wines in the Australian producer's Rare & Fine Collection.

At a special tasting in Mayfair, London on 4 October, Yalumba winemaker Kevin Glastonbury presented the second-ever release of The Caley, a Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and Barossa Shiraz blend from 2013.
