Yangarra Estate Vineyard McLaren Vale Old Vine Grenache 2008

From vines planted in 1946 comes this Grenache from McLaren Vale. Deep intense red berry fruit - a touch of black Cherry - leads to a welcoming, buxom, big, ripe palate.

The finish: gloriously smooth, a "velvet curtain of tannin". Good acid, but it's all in check. Balanced. Impressive.
