Yangarra Old Vine grenache

2014. ABV. 14.5%

A good life left ahead of it with a fine acid backbone

James Halliday – 94 Points – Matured for 10 months in used French oak. Very good colour; rich, full predominantly red fruits supported by fine tannins. No hint at all of confection or jam. The finish simply reinforces the depth and the freshness of the fruit from 70 y.o. vines. Bargain.

Vibrant and refined, from bush vines planted in 1946.

Yangarra Old Vine grenache

From the winery

Hand-picked and received via a belt elevator, de-stemmed and then sorted
via two sorting tables, resulting in tubs of perfectly whole berries, of which
half are crushed. These tubs are then tipped into our open fermenters, where
the must is cold-soaked for 5-6 days and undergoes wild fermentation.
A careful regime of only plunging to minimize over extraction is carried out,
before the wine was sent to older French barriques after about 12-14 days.
No Pressings are used. The wine in barrel was kept on the yeast lees for
approximately 8 months prior to blending. The wine received no fining, just
filtration. Bottled in February 2016. Certified Biodynamic.
