This wine is “close to our hearts”. I buy the organic grapes from the Yangarra High Sands block (planted in the 40’s) of bush vines of high pedigree! Peter Fraser and Shelly Torresan make the wine at Yangarra in a very hand-crafted way using whole berries and open fermentation with hand-plunging, followed by ageing in older oak barrels. It’s a perfumed, slightly reserved young wine at present, but it’s silky and beautifully textured red with enough rope tannins to age for a decade or more. This is pure! - Randall

"Grenache's telltale aroma of kirsch kicks off the melee. Turkish delight, sour-cherry pith, orange zest, too. Some bunchy spice and a scrub of firm sandy tannins – almost volcanic and chamois of feel – splay across a long finish, evincing authority while conferring a welcome savouriness. A delicious wine, although it could do with half a degree more ripeness and warmth. " 92 points - Ned Goodwin MW, Wine Companion
