While not in the same tier as the other Yalumba Grenache this Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2018 is such affable drinking. From dry grown vines at Vine Vale. this generous, rounded, slightly syrupy but open and easy. Red frogs. A little raspberry cough syrup. The late alcohol bite is the only intrusion on the generous palate, rendering this just a fraction too thick to be sublime. Drinkability still high.
Best drinking: now to eight years plus. 17.5/20, 91/100. 14%, $28. Would I buy it? Two glasses.
