Yangarra Ovitelli Grenache 2021


Always the delicately fine wine and long awaited between vintages. Here they have selected berry sorting and 100% destemmed fruit that goes into ceramic eggs for 13 months. No pressings, no oak. Basically no Bull. This is NOT a red lollied water Grenache for slurping sake. This is style and substance and this, my friends, is Grenache in the hands of those that adore it. Fresh pomegranate seeds picked from their hulls. Goji berry, salted red plum, mace and dried porcini mushroom powder. It’s the slinkyness across the palate that curves with the finesse of skin tannins. Rosemary stem, thistle and pine needle with a savoury licorice root astringency. Such an elegant expression of site backed by pinpoint accuracy. Drink with roast figs, chalky goats cheese and pomegranate molasses.
