Yalumba Barossa Bush Vine Grenache 2009
90 Points - Wine of the Week - "Bush vines are the preferred way to grow grenache - as opposed to the orderly rows of trellis wires that support most vines. Grenache is grown as a bush in Provence and the Rhone Valley as well as the Barossa. Yalumba has a range of grenaches, this one being its cheapest. Itís not a complex wine but is very accessible in its youth, thanks to a combination of soft, light tannins and sweetly juicy fruit. The shape is round and the texture seductively smooth. Thereís a hint of confectionery about it. You donít have to wait for it to mature. Itís ready young - like pinot noir." Drink now to 2017. 14% alcohol.
