From bush vines planted in 1946 high on the estate’s deep sandy soils, the Old Vine Grenache is complex, elegant and enticing. 

"From vines planted in '45 on a deep sandy dune dubbed ‘The Beach' by Yangarra. Whole bunches are open-fermented. The bouquet exudes fresh-picked raspberries which form the nucleus of the powerful and intense palate, with grainy tannins that underline the complexity of the wine." - 96 points, Halliday Wine Companion

"For fans of grenache, Yangarra’s Old Vine release is generally a wine to stock up on every year. Made from vines planted in 1946, it is not only fantastic value but also quite a serious wine. And the 2019 version is in one word breathtaking – I can’t remember a better wine under this label. It is an elegant expression of grenache that already displays pinot noir like subtlety. Red currant, leather, spice and earthy aromas sit over a bed of older oak. In the mouth the wine is a story of supreme harmony and balance. Mid-weight fleshy fruits are underpinned by a core of polished tannins that then lead on to a long and silky finish. It is a cracking wine to enjoy now and over the next ten years which needs some serious food to do it justice – coq au vin all the way." - 95 points, Angas Hughson, winepilot.com.au
