Yalumba 2019 Bush Vine Grenache "Samuel's Collection"Barossa Valley, Australia
With 170 years of unbroken independence, Yalumba continues to make wine at its founder’s home estate under direction of the same family today. Samuel’s Collection honours Yalumba’s founder Samuel Smith, his spirit of independence and conviction to invest in the land and make great wine.
Yalumba is fortunate to have growers with old, gnarled bush vine Grenache, producing small quantities with concentrated flavours. Growers like the Schiller family (vines planted in 1935, 1945, 1965), Habermann family (1972), along with our Tri-Centenary Vineyard (1929) all produce the individual and intriguingly complex styles of Grenache we seek. A range of terroir can be seen across the different vineyards, from sandy soils and sandy loam to red-brown earth over red clay.
