YALUMBA 2013 GRENACHE "BUSH VINE"

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston (in the Barossa Valley, South Australia) seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch “Yalumba” – aboriginal for “all the land around”. Five generations and 160 years later, Yalumba, Australia’s oldest family-owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over. Often described as one of Australia’s unsung heroes, Grenache is naturally lighter in color than Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon but continually provides wonderful big fruit flavors. Yalumba is extremely fortunate to have some of the oldest Grenache vines in the Barossa, with fruit for this wine being sourced from vines planted in 1898!

Spiced red berries, mixed red fruits, cedar, mint and incense make for a pleasant nosing, as crimson florals and red wine candle join the fray. Grenache can have such a sexy, inviting perfume and this old vine beauty has lost none of her charms over the years. The palate smartly echoes the nose: mainly red fruits (raspberries, cherries, redcurrant), brown spices, subtle earthiness are girded by hints of herbals and mint, with a touch of briar. Balanced acidity and supple tannins lead to a fruit-filled, nicely spiced finish. Easy-drinking, sensous, satisfying.
