Selected Best Wine - Spring 2018

by David Furer David Furer

2013 Yangarra Grenache High Sands

Grenache from McLaren Vale Australia

Average Price: $80.00 - $100.00

Winemaker Peter Fraser's circa 1946, own-rooted, biodynamically dry-farmed bush vines are amongst the finest expression is available--not only in Australia but in the world. Sure, Yangarra's Shiraz is stellar, but equally excellent is its Grenache. A single vyd., mineral laden site is the basis for this often overlooked Rhone varietal displaying a medium-full, balanced body densely flavored with plum and cocoa and a warm, spicy finish. Pair it along side a medium rare steak and roasted rutabagas dressed with cumin butter.
