The fruit for the Yalumba Hand Picked Tricentenary Vines Grenache is sourced from a single vineyard in the Barossa Valley, affectionately known as The Nursery Block. This vineyard has old bush vines that were planted in 1889, some of the oldest Grenache vines in Australia. They're called "tricentenary vines" since they were planted in the 19th century, made it through the 20th century and are still going strong in the 21st.
Yalumba Hand Picked Tricentenary Grenache 2004 is dark cherry red in colour. The aroma is vibrant and alive with ultra-ripe, exotic fruits and an almost raspberry and chocolate reduction, finishing with scents of violets. The palate is full bodied with beautifully silky tannins, fresh truffles, rose petals and meaty, savory hints. Perfect for drinking now or can be cellared with confidence over 3-5 years.
