Yangarra Estate Ovitelli Grenache 2017


Joyous fruit is flanked by exotic spices. This is complexity and sophistication all the way.

From a 2 hectare block planted in 1946, the crushed fruit is tipped into 675L ceramic eggs.  Fermentation occurred in the eggs and remained on skins for 138 days. No pressings used, no oak either with an additional six months in the eggs. Certified Organic and Biodynamic

Medium bodied and delicate to taste, mulberries and blueberries reign supreme. Flirtatious from the get-go, touches of raspberry and strawberry are present too. Pretty scents of dried red flowers and almost dashes of violet slowly rise up. Mouthfilling and charming, superfine tannins roll out to a long and moreish finish. Just brilliant.

Drink now to five years.
