This excellent Grenache recently picked up a Trophy and Gold medal at the 2009 Royal Queensland Wine Show. Matured for 6 months in older French oak barriques and hogsheads. Yalumba is extremely fortunate to have access to a diverse style of Grenache sites to produce this wine, ranging in age from 30 years to the 70 year old gnarled bush vines, and some older.

A Grenache that packs a real flavour punch.
Semi translucent crimson mauve colour with deep mauve hue. The nose displays very good intensity with lifted aromas of ripe raspberry and dark cherry, followed by some liquorice and confectionary background notes. Medium weight with mouthfilling flavours of spice, liquorice and confectionary, followed by some black pepper that powers through the finish. Fine grained soft tannins with very long aftertaste of ripe raspberry, confectionary, black pepper and spice. Great Value.
Drink now or cellar 2-3 years (2011-2012)
