The wine shows savoury cherry red fruits and complex aromas of powdery spices, white pepper, mushrooms, earth and truffles. A full, rich and juicy wine with a vibrant fruit, balanced with fresh acidity and a long grainy tannin finish.

A truly individual wine showcasing the essence of Grenache sourced from vines that have been in the ground for more than 125 years. Hand-picked from 820 gnarly old bush vines planted in 1889, their home is two acres of estate owned sandy soil over yellow-brown clay in the heart of the Barossa Valley. These veteran vines give up small quantities of exceptional grapes and this is arguably Yalumbas best example of Grenache.

The grapes were hand picked and crushed to our eight tonne open top stainless steel fermenters. The wild yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate fermentation, before cultured winery yeasts were then added. Fermentation and cap/skin management was controlled by the Yalumba designed cap plunger. Depending on the particular year, the wine may then remain on skins post-fermentation for a period of time, which may be up to two to three months. This extended maturation helps to contribute an even greater complexity and individuality to the wine. The wine was then matured for 7 months in older French oak hogsheads. The result is a wine of great richness, texture and complexity.

Matured for 12 Months in older Hungarian    (80%) & American (20%) oak hogsheads.
