Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2016

Oh this is a joy. A delicate and pretty Grenache - savour every drop.

Violets, red apple skin, red berries, star anise, cardamom and game meat - so much going on.
Gorgeous medium bodied, deliberately picked earlier to ensure the fruit retains its purity - winemaker Kevin Glastonbury is onto a winner with his reinvigorated approach to Grenache.

Finger licking savoury fruit the hero. 10% whole bunches do their thing with magical impact. Ribbons of delicate spice roll effortlessly through the mouth. Cherry fruit is surrounded by briar and framed by well-crafted acidity. You'll see the bottom of the bottle in no time. A treasure to share with those close to you.

Drink now to six years.
