Sometimes you just want to reach for a bottle that you know will be reliable, juicy and well made. Part of the “Samuel’s Collection” from the consistent Yalumba. Vegan friendly.
Yalumba, Bush Vine, Grenache, Barossa, 2020
Easy raspberry fruit and leaf with herbaceous hints of anise/fennel and gun smoke. Choc milk sweetness/comfort and a stony edge. Generous damp red fruit profile with raspy just-so tannins that billow out to amaro-herb/spice tinged bittersweet earthiness, culminating in a bright flick at the coda. Familiar and ready for a rack of pork ribs.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
