  1. Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2019
    Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2019
    The estate's efforts across the respective grenache cuvees are almost as venerable as those across the very fine expressions of viognier. This, a thirst-slaking red, is worth celebrating for its youthful primary fruit: cranberry, cumquat and cherry bonbon. Yet, most impressive are the saline, slaty tannins that been massaged into the fray with aplomb, helping to imbue poise while curtailing the ripeness of fruit. NED GOODWIN MW, James Halliday's Wine Companion

    Sourced from very old bush vines (some dating back to 1929) which add both depth of fruit and phenolic impact, lending the wine some subtle gravitas. Lovely, so primary it's almost juicy, lifted with elements of spice that slides in to grilled meats. Beautifully textured, vibrant and inviting. Lovely, did I say that already? There is structure and heft here too but it only adds to the overall sensuality of the wine. We all tasted this and asked how much. When we heard the price we jumped on it. Yalumba are masters at the craft and this is ludicrously good for the money. The ideal mid-week wine with so much going for it that it embarrasses a lot of other wines in a similar price range.

  2. Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2019
    Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2019
    Hand-picked fruit from 2 vineyards planted 1929 and 1949. 45% whole bunches, wild fermented. Matured 7.5 months in 7yo French and Hungarian oak hogsheads. The medium-bodied, red-fruited persona of Barossa grenache is compelling, all the more so when lifted by the fragrance and exotic spice of whole-bunch fermentation. With the full, glorious detail accurately preserved under screw cap, this is a joyous celebration of dark raspberries, wild strawberries, rosehip and incense. Super-fine tannins are perfectly matched to its fragrant mood. Benchmark. (96) JAMES HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
