Yangarra 2018 High Sands Grenache (McLaren Vale)

From a classic Grenache vintage, and from old bush vines growing in ancient, silky, beach-sand-like soils in the Blewitt Springs subregion, this is one of Australia's finest examples of Grenache. While destined for a long life in the cellar, it is an aromatic beauty now, blossoming after several days open in bottle. Pristine red-berry fruit, rose petal, clove, white spice and distinctive minerality comprise the aromas. The palate offers gorgeous texture, juicy, vibrant fruit and sculpted, talc tannins, with elegance, length and complexity. An iron fist in a velvet glove, this should age beautifully through 2036.
