97 points James Suckling
"Very floral and quite striking aromas here, with fruit in the blueberry, pepper and spice zone, as well as a leafy edge. There’s berry pastry and pomegranate on offer, together with orange zest and redcurrant. The palate has a very composed core of raspberries, redcurrants, blood orange, papaya and peach. So emulsified and seamless. Good concentration and length here. This vintage spent 249 days on skins and was bottled without any maturation in oak at all. Scintillatingly pure and fresh. Drink over the next decade."

"Made from less than a hectare of 130-year-old Grenache vines planted in sandy soil and given 249 days of post-ferment maceration in tank before bottling.
Gorgeous example of how Barossa old-vine Grenache handled with sensitivity and not overburdened with oak can produce a wine with exquisite delicacy and translucence: beautiful aromas of rose petals and concentrated redcurrants, lovely life and freshness, a seductive flow of red fruit and fine, melted tannins. 18+/20 points. (MA)"

Vinous Reverie Notes
This single vineyard Grenache has been crafted from grapes sourced from a two acre block in the Yalumba Tri-Centenary Vineyard. Located in the heart of the Barossa Valley, this block comprises 820 gnarly old bush vines that were planted in 1889. The vineyard features deep, sandy loam layers underlain with red-brown clay. With careful management, dry grown vines on these soils can consistently produce outstanding quality fruit. Tasting Notes: Striking floral aromas, complex and intriguing. Wild cherries, raspberries and pomegranates are entwined with orange zest, pepper, spices and hints of cedar. The hallmark of this wine is 250 day post-ferment maceration which imparts incredibly silky texture and refinement to the palate, creating a textural wine with depth, structure, vibrant acidity and defined tannins. Stunning now, it will gradually evolve over the medium term.
