Yangarra Estate Vineyard Old Vine Grenache 2017 (McLaren Vale, South Australia) "...maraschino cherry, raspberries and middle eastern spices..."
From bush vines planted in 1946 high on the estate’s deep sandy soils, the Old Vine Grenache is complex, elegant and enticing.
"This is one of the most exciting wines I have tried in a long time. Wildly intense with bright maraschino cherry aromas and flavours. The palate is young, taut and tactile with cherry pip vibrancy and shimmering spice. The barely perceptible savouriness gives the wine depth and character. Highly recommended." - Toni Patterson, The Real Review (95 Points)
"From bush vines planted in ‘46, 50% whole-berries, wild yeast and kept on lees in used French oak for 10 months. So fragrant it's breathtaking. To start, a whirl of perfectly ripe raspberries and red currants, patchouli and subtle Middle Eastern spices. The palate is tightly wound, with raspberry-like acidity, more pronounced tannins in the background. They'll meet up in time. Drink by 2029" - James Halliday, Wine Companion (95 Points)
"A savory and tangy red with hints of blueberries, meat and cloves. Medium to full body, chewy tannins, a fresh finish and citrus undertones. Drink now. Screw cap." - James Suckling (93 Points)
