Background

This is the Australian operation of Kendall-Jackson, one of the leading premium wine producers in California. In 2000 Kendall-Jackson acquired the 172ha Eringa Park vineyard from Normans Wines (the oldest vines dated back to 1923). The renamed Yangarra Estate Vineyard is the estate base for the operation, which built a state-of-the-art premium red wine facility in 10, and is moving to certified organic status with its vineyards. In 12 it purchased the historic Clarendon Vineyard from the estate of the late Alan Hickinbotham it had been on the market for $10 million, but the actual price paid was not disclosed. Whatever it may have been, it represents a major endorsement of the prospects for top-quality Australian wines. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.

Tasting Notes

One of the more perfumed vintages, the Old Vine Grenache has pretty floral aromas and briary bright red fruits. The palate shows lots of bright cherry fruit, and the vineyard’s typical fine line of sandy mineral tannins and acidity.

Reviews

90 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate):
"Medium ruby/purple, the 2013 Grenache Old Vine has intense aromas of red and black cherries, black raspberries and anise with pepper, violets and meaty accents. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the palate has chewy tannins with plenty of backbone, racy acid and a very long finish."

91 points, Sarah Ahmed (Decanter Magazine):
"Effusive florals and pretty red fruits offset delicious old-vine dried spices and sandy tannins. The alcohol is worn very lightly; lovely freshness."
