The vines that yield fruit for Yangarra’s acclaimed Old Vine Grenache were first planted in 1946. Made exclusively with 100% Grenache from Estate bush vines, this is an exceptional starting point to discover what Yangarra is all about.
Elegant complexity and perfume give life to Old Vine. Depth and freshness are in harmony, with red fruit shining through. Full bodied and with firm tannin structure, this is a pleasure to drink now, but would also reward with cellaring.
"Planted in 1946 on a sand dune in the cooler, elevated northeast of McLaren Vale. Hand-picked and sorted in the winery, the fermentation is wild. It is a glorious example of grenache picked earlier than in the past, retaining all the freshness of red cherries/berries, spices starting to build, tannins beautifully shaped." 97 points, Wine Companion (September 2018)
