Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache 2014
On the lighter side of medium bodied, some of the vines contributing to this are 100+ years of age - you don't get many wines for around twenty bucks with that pedigree. Dangerously smashable, red florals, some hibiscus and red berries are lush as the mouth is coated generously. A fine dusting of spice rides gently through to a long and moreish finish.
I've referred to this previously as the 'old boot' and deservedly so. I'd come back here time and time again. And extra point or two for pure pleasure.
Drink now to six years.
91/100 - Very good
