Review: 2012 Yangarra Grenache McLaren Vale Old Vine
This grenache hails from McLaren Vale in South Australia. Those expecting the typical, Australian sugar bomb might be pleasantly surprised to find ample restraint here: Touches of strawberry and blueberry up front lead to a silky core that integrates mild notes of spun sugar to the mix. The end result is slightly sweet, but still balanced thanks to its focus on the fruit, and it’s surprisingly food friendly.
