Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from "The Beach" vineyard with vines planted in 1946 in sixty-million-year-old maslin sands. This wine exhibits incredibly rich and intense flavors of dark fruits with velvety tannins, and with an inviting perfume of fresh roses.

"A consistent performer over the years, Yangarra's Grenache is one of the rare examples that appears to have the stuff to improve for two or three years. Aromas are dominated by oak at this young age - cedar, vanilla and coffee - but there's plenty of dense, plummy fruit that comes through on the palate and a firmly tannic finish that promises better things ahead."
