Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2013

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AustraliaI love the freshness of this overlooked Aussie grape, so oft relegated to a blending partner. When treated with respect - especially in old vine examples like this - results are outstanding. Opening with primary cherry, mineral, scented raspberry and fine spice. Beautiful silken strawberry, savoury spiced cherry, fine grained spice and orange peel close out the lively palate. Pure fruited, precise and clear, and a natural for tender pork tenderloin, quail or grilled salmon.Tasted: 29 March 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 specialty listing ON 25.00 QC 20.00 SAQ NS 22.00 Producer: Yalumba Wine CompanyDistributors: Negociants International
