Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache 2018
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
The latest range in Yalumba's vast array of wines, the Samuel's Collection, includes this well-priced Grenache. It's light bodied, gluggable and perfectly on trend. Bright and bouncy, it bursts with ripe red berries followed by dried leaf, green peppercorn and floral characters. The palate is equally dainty, with crunchy acidity, juicy fruit and soft herbal tannins-a straightforward but highly likable drop for drinking young.
Perfumed, with heady floral and baking spice aromas singing through to raspberry coulis and strawberry flavors, set on a smooth and seamless body. A hint of vanilla bean lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2034.
The 2018 Samuel's Collection Bushvine Grenache features layers of bright cherry and raspberry fruit. There's enough of an herbal note to give this medium to full-bodied wine a slight savory edge and sufficient complexity to keep it interesting over the next several years.
