Yalumba ‘Old Bush Vine’ Barossa Grenache 2017

Grenache from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Jul-2018
Pale ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is initially light and restrained, but reveals raspberry fruit aromas melded with a line of fresh and dark herbs, unfolding a little pepper. An array of red fruits and herbs unfold with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is fragrant with red florals, raspberry fruit and nuances of herbs and pepper. The fruit is rich and sweet, and the mouthfeel has energy and a slipperiness with light, supple tannin in support. A little alcoholic power underlines the fruit as it carries to a voluminous, ethereal finish of red florals and fruits. Deceptively light in colour, this Grenache has sweet raspberry fruit with supple tannin extract, and some underlying power. Match with poultry and pork, and Mediterranean fare over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Barossa bush vines planted between 1898 and 1972, indigenous yeast fermentation initiated, and fermented with a small portion of whole clusters to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 6 months in seasoned American, French and Hungarian oak hogsheads. 17.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $24.00
