Such clarity, purity and depth here. This is surely a benchmark for the band of pedigree Barossa grenache, delivered right on the apex of quality and value. Vibrant raspberries, cherries and red plums flood the nose and palate and the chassis of fruit-tannin is sleekly cut. Fresh, juicy resolve. Drink now. Screw cap.

There are times when I want to drink a glass of red wine and not have to study it or take notes. The 2018 Yalumba Samuel's Collection Bush Vine Grenache does not require pencil and paper.  This wine displays a beautiful and open-knit style. Its endearing aromas and flavors of ebullient red and blue fruits make it a superb pairing partner with grilled baby back ribs. (Tasted: August 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

90pts Wine Spectator

Perfumed, with heady floral and baking spice aromas singing through to raspberry coulis and strawberry flavors, set on a smooth and seamless body. A hint of vanilla bean lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2034.

90pts Wine Enthusiast

The latest range in Yalumba’s vast array of wines, the Samuel’s Collection, includes this well-priced Grenache. It’s light bodied, gluggable and perfectly on trend. Bright and bouncy, it bursts with ripe red berries followed by dried leaf, green peppercorn and floral characters. The palate is equally dainty, with crunchy acidity, juicy fruit and soft herbal tannins—a straightforward but highly likable drop for drinking young.

Winemaker Notes

The fragrance is saturated with brooding plum red fruits, dark cherries, and perfumed berries. This is a defined wine showing the richness and concentration of the vintage. The palate is richly textured, fleshy, round and supple, with a red juiciness that merges into velvety tannins.

Enjoy with a pork pie or miso roasted eggplant with tomatoes, dill, mint and black vinegar.
