Wine of the Week AU

Yalumba The Tri-Centenary Grenache 2013, Barossa Valley, AUD $64

A glorious wine with an extraordinary intensity of flavour. Juicy dark cherries with background savouriness, a touch of liquorice and mixed spice. Despite these mesmerising flavours, what really draws me in is the textural nature of the wine, with support provided by an intricate frame of tannin. Enjoy now or age for further deliciousness. Small quantities produced. (Cork)
