Samuel’s Collection celebrates the founder of Yalumba, Samuel Smith and showcases the varieties and blends iconic to both the Barossa and Yalumba. This Grenache is sourced from a collection of gnarled old bush vine vineyards planted between 1920 – 1965, each individual parcel of fruit imparting its own individuality and complexity onto the final blend. Maturation took place in older French puncheons and hogsheads for a period of 9 months.
Semi translucent dark red core with black toned edges and a red hue. Alluring dark raspberry, liquorice, cherry and confectionary scents captivate the olfactory senses with hints of dried herbs and spice also evident. Rich, juicy and lush in its feel the palate is swamped with delicious dark raspberry, liquorice and ripe cherry fruits. Lying underneath are notions of vanillin confectionary, subtle earth and spice. Silky smooth tannins. Excellent power and concentration without being heavy. Long succulent conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%
