Yangarra McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

McLaren Vale, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14%

Yangarra Estate is a biodynamic wine producer based in South Australia's McLaren Vale region. The Yangarra philosophy centres around producing wines solely from its single-vineyard estate and the property is devoted to the best grape varieties of the southern Rhone.

This 2017 Yangarra McLaren Vale Shiraz is a brilliant McLaren Vale Shiraz with beautiful approachability while still retaining plenty of depth and fruit concentration. Medium to full-bodied, it offers an impressive core of blueberries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and subtle spice. Ready to be enjoyed now this is likely to only improve with a few years in the cellar. A wine that has already attracted plenty of interest, we expect our limited remaining stocks to go quickly.

"97 Points. From six estate blocks, 75% destemmed, every berry optically scrutinised by a very expensive piece of equipment that happily deals with any disease or other damage (say botrytis). Wild yeast-open fermented, plunged, 14 months in French oak (20% new). The pure singularity of this certified biodynamic wine has a different face to its King's Wood sibling. It relentlessly captures the senses with its dark spiced fruits, the aftertaste slowly diminishing. $35. 14% alc. Drink 2047" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

Yangarra’s combination of rare geologies, moderate altitude, abundant sunshine and cool evening breezes make it perfect for growing varieties that thrive in these moderate maritime environments. The respect of this special piece of country is evident in the wines they make from its grapes - every Yangarra Estate wine is a confident reflection of the nature of this land.

Shiraz from our estate vineyard adopts more of a cooler climate expression than the typical McLaren Vale style thanks to the vineyard’s elevation and cooling night breezes from the nearby Southern Lofty Ranges, but retains concentration and complexity.

WINEMAKING INFORMATION: Approximately 10% whole bunches were used with 50% of the fruit remaining as whole berries. Mechanically sorted before going into open-top fermenters. Cold soaked until the onset of wild-fermentation, utilising the yeasts that naturally come in with the grapes from the vineyard. A careful regime of plunging and rack and returns. The resulting wine was kept on lees in 25% new French oak, 75% older French oak for 12 months. No fining, just filtration.

ALCOHOL: 14.5%

TA: 6.2 g/L
