Winemaker Notes

A highly complex Old Vine Grenache of intense beauty, with notes of cherry and plums giving way to hints of licorice, dried spring flowers, cocoa and cinnamon spice. The palate is driven and concentrated, with fine sandy mineral tannins.

Blend: 100% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

D 94
Decanter
A terrific wine that reveals the heart and soul of McLaren Vale generosity. The aromas are all in the red to dark berry spectrum - raspberry, boysenberry, mulberry right through to red plum - and there’s peppery spice and raisin notes too. The palate has power and drive: the tannins are crisp, gently grippy and very much the strength of the wine, leading to a long finish where plum flavours abound. Lovely, sturdy stuff.

You can sail around the world and try to find the best Grenache and you will probably never to get close to the superb quality found in the 2012 Yangarra Estate Vineyard. Made from 67 year-old vines, this wine simply exudes berries in all shapes and colors; red to black and everything in between, this wine takes no prisoners. An absolute stunner from start to finish. (Tasted: May 4, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Sleek and lithe, with a meaty note running through the effusive blackberry and mint flavors, finishing with polish. Offers depth and intensity without weight.

McLaren Vale

View all products

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract and alcohol with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style. Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Grenache

Enjoying great glory across a variety of appellations, Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. The grape typically produces full-bodied reds interestingly light in both color and tannins. While it can make a charmingly complex single varietal wine, it also lends well to blending. Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha) where it remains important, particularly in Priorat where winemakers enjoy great liberties in blending Grenache with other varieties. Today it might be most well associated with the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its Villages. The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic Grenache (there called Cannonau) whereas in California, Washington and Australia, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and in blends.

In the Glass

In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with strawberry, cherry blackberry, purple plum and in the richest examples, even cocoa, black tea or licorice.

Perfect Pairings

Despite its bold flavors, Grenache has very mild-mannered tannins, which makes it eminently quaffable on its own, yet easy to match with food. Because of its friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb chops, pork loin or tri-tip. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not easily be fazed by a bit of spice.

Sommelier Secret

Sardinia is often revered for its association with a long and healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, crediting this to their antioxidant-rich red wines, like Cannonau, along with their healthy Mediterranean diet.
