Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2012

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AustraliaLow yielding gnarly old vine grenache from the Barossa shows its concentration and depth of fruit here through the mulberry, kirsch and menthol blackberry ripeness and fine, ample persistent peppery spice. French oak framing is now well absorbed into the dense fruit, with smoothed tannins providing a natural, easy structure to prop up all this richness. Lingering mustard seed and some heat on the finish. A full style showing well right now, especially so with long braised lamb or veal shank.Tasted: 04 January 2016Tasted by: Prices: AB 24.00 fine wine shops BC 25.00 BCLS ON 20.00 Vintages QC 20.00 specialty listing Producer: Yalumba Wine CompanyDistributors: Negociants International
