Stupendous Grenache

Yangarra Ovitelli Grenache 2021

Ovitelli is the most perfumed and elegant Grenache from the sands at Yangarra. Sourced from a single block, the vibrant fruit of those dry grown 1946 bush vines is rewarded with a long, luxurious ferment and a whole autumn on skins in big ceramic eggs.

Sourced from Block 30 (2.0 Ha, planted in 1946 and adjacent to the High Sands block).

Hand-picked 24-25th March and selectively berry sorted. 100% destemmed, crushed and tipped into 675L ceramic eggs. The fermentation occurred in the eggs and remained on skins for 133 days. No pressings are used in this wine. No oak, matured exclusively in the eggs for a total 13 months. Bottled June 2022. Certified Organic/Biodynamic.
