Yelland & Papps Devote Old Vine Grenache 2012

This is an excellent wine worth keeping an eye out for.

Take a whiff and you get a gentle dusting of black pepper, dried herb, raspberry and strawberry aromas. Soft and inviting.

Coming from 45 year old vines, generous fruit is dominated by raspberries which is super smooth and balanced beautifully. There's some jube lolly type sweetness at the death followed by a long finish begging for another top up.

Cellar for the medium term, but there's no reason why you can't rip into this now.

Only 1600 bottles produced and they'll be sure to run out quickly.

Region: Barossa
RRP: $35
