Yalumba Carriage Block Grenache 2016

Part of the Distinguished Sites range. Sourced from the Carriage Block, located in the northern end of the Barossa Valley. The vineyard, planted in 1954 is less than a hectare in size. The 2017 has just been released but the 2016 is well worth the purchase if spotted. Winemaker is the Kevin Glastonbury. Cork seal.

Yalumba, Carriage Block, Grenache, Barossa Valley, 2016

Rose petal, grated smoky chocolate, cherry dark raspberry with just fired shotgun cartridge and underlying juicy cola and pink grapefruit. Medium bodied palate: ethereal and tactile juxtaposition. With red and blue fruit spectrum with savoury, elemental base. Plenty of length with well tatted lacy tannin.

RRP: $50
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.5/20
