About

A Grenache of remarkable purity and energy here from the team at Yangarra. As winemaker Peter Fraser notes, "The Ovitelli is our most elegant Grenache from the sands at Yangarra, with great emphasis on perfume, tension and precision." To create the Ovitelli Grenache a selection of the best fruit from the old Grenache vines that populate the Yangarra vineyard is carefully berry sorted then sent to ceramic egg to ferment naturally and is left to rest on skins for 140 days before being pressed. This is an ethereal Grenache, a nervy and tightly coiled rendition of the variety, which speaks eloquently of its home. Gary Walsh awarded the 2015 vintage 95 points, noting, "What a beautiful wine... Hats off to the team at Yangarra." Only 94 dozen made.

What it Tastes Like

"Flowers, sugar coated almonds, cherry and raspberry, aromatic herbs, Medium bodied, red fruits and spice, beautiful mineral and brick dust tannin, perfume and almost cranberry juice acidity, freshness and great length, etched with tannin and scented with flowers and almond. What a beautiful wine. It’s an Italianate expression, as well as essence of old vine Grenache. Hats off to the team at Yangarra." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
