Winemaker's Notes:

At Yalumba, we make Grenache that has a perfumed and aromatic bouquet, a silky smooth texture and a savoury finish.

Often described as one of Australia's unsung heroes, Grenache is naturally lighter in color than Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon but continually provides us with wonderful, big fruit flavors. Bursting with savory berry and spice, a slightly higher alcohol level is well-balanced with fruit and oak, resulting in a unique red wine experience quite unlike that found with the more common varieties. Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache – where elegance and harmony are more important than color and boldness.

About Yalumba:

Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery, founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith. From modest beginnings, the Yalumba Wine Company has grown to become one of Australia's most successful wineries, owned by 5th generation Robert Hill-Smith. Yalumba regularly receives accolades for its outstanding wines, and for its leadership in viticultural innovation and sustainable farming. Yalumba was the first winery in the world to be recognized with the Climate Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (2007), earned the International Green Apple Gold Award from House of Commons (U.K. 2011), and was the first winery outside the United States to win the BRIT International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing Competition (2013). The Yalumba portfolio commences with the fresh and flavorsome varietal wines of the Y Series, then moves up to the Samuel’s Garden line to capture the essence of the classic Rhone-influenced varietals of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, explores sub-regional complexity through innovative, modern wines in the Hand Pickedline, and culminates with the coveted, collectible Yalumba Rare and Fine wines including Signature and Octavius.
