Yelland & Papps Single Vineyard Old Vine Grenache 2021
You hear and see the word ’Single Vineyard’ a lot these days to promote both a message of originality and superior quality. In this case there is no question at all in my mind that these characteristics are being defined to the fullest with this wine from Yelland and Papps.
Exclusively sourced from a vineyard in the sub region of Tanunda planted between 1920 and 1925 on original rootstock, the youngest vines onsite just turning 96 years old at the time of this release. The vineyard has two distinct soil profiles. In the East parcel its red brown earth over limestone, the West fractured shale and mudstone mixed with quartz, ironstone and calcareous clay.
This vineyard has been producing high-quality Grenache for Yelland &Papps since 2013. Previously sourced for the Second Take Grenache, these 1953 vines produce the characters in Grenache that we are looking for, savoury undertones and intense structure.
