Yangarra 2019 Ovitelli Grenache (McLaren Vale)

Editors' Choice

From the block next to the renowned High Sands vineyard, Ovitelli skips the oak in favor of 158 days on skins in large ceramic eggs. The result is a Grenache that pulses with energy, purity and expression of place. Aromas match the shimmering antique-rose color. There's fleshy wild red berries, rose petals, tea leaf and an underbelly of white spice. The palate is layered and elegant with a quiet power in the form of ultrafine, textural tannins that cinch the crunchy acidity and juicy fruit. Drinking stunningly now, this wine could cellar until 2029 for another level of complexity. Christina Pickard
