Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2021

Part of the Distinguished Sites range. Sourced from two blocks of 1949 and 1929 vines in the Yalumba Tri-Centenary block on the valley floor. The two blocks were wild fermented separately (one with 100% whole bunch, with the other 30% whole bunch). 8 months in old French oak. Winemaker is Kevin Glastonbury.

VineVale-Grenache

Deep garnet ruby. Powerful cherry, Dutch licorice, 75% dark chocolate, touches of sweeter molasses, a hint of animalistic lanolin and bazaar spices. Elegance and balance with the right amount of velvety tannins and focused acidity for structure to the soft, silky fruit. Top value.

RRP: $40
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.5/20 (94/100)
