The spoils of a tiny two-acre patch planted on sandy ironstone gravel soils. It's a brooding, tarry style with dark plum and licorice fruit aromas, some spicy oak and plum essence here too. The palate's beautifully rich and oozes lovely depth, really sanguine tannin, blood plum flavour and a solid plum stone finish here. Terrific! Good Wine Guide 2013, Nick Stock

Deep crimson-purple; a powerful wine, skilfully made to allow the red berry fruit of the mourvedre full expression while keeping the tannins under control; has very good length and balance. Drinking: To 2020; Rating: 94 Points; James Halliday; Australian Wine Companion 2013

One on level, after about 36 hours open, this wine brought to mind the cheery, glace cherry-like Pinot of Domaine Dujac, with the slightly-grilled cashew tones typical of Jacques Seysses.  But there was always a glowering King Kong lurking behind, waiting for the silly flush of youth to realise somebody’s gotta carry it when it gets tired.  Which adds up to a classic Mourvèdre, really.  On this side of the glass, it’s as if the King of Cornas, August Clape, suddenly up and made himself a Bandol.  The wine has a cheeky viscosity which teases you to fear that at any point, it might teeter over, and leave you with astringent tannin and acid, but that never occurs, and the see-saw keeps the palate highly entertained. It’s a great pity to release this wine so young. $32; 14% alcohol; screw cap; tasted 30 October to 2 November 2011; 92+++, more later. Drankster; Philip White

Yangarra red wines have this inherent drinkability about them.  That may seem a daft things to say about wine, but what I really mean is: to me they're the wine equivalent of Pringles.  Once I have a glass I cannot stop.  They're not big juice 'n' fruit bombs either. This 2010 Mourvèdre comes from a 2 acre block planted in 1998 - so still relatively young - I first tasted the 2009 and was in raptures over that.  Aromas of black cherry and chestnut waft out the glass, then, a secondary background aromatic element, a citrus freshness that I have started to see in some McLaren Vale reds. The palate is smooth, silken, wow - there's the charm that has me reaching for another glass.  There's tannin too, mild grainy tannin that provides enough of a counterpoint to the smoothness before it.  Dangerously drinkable indeed. Rating: 92 Points; Very Good; The Vinsomniac

The Yangarra reds are so fresh and juicy; they’re answers, not questions. Ready to go. Alive with flavour and scent. Fresh leather, dark berries, hints of citrus peel and fresh-cut fennel. Enough tannin to tether it all together but not enough to get in the way. A touch more oomph than the grenache of the same vintage, though not quite the delicacy. I would not be saying no to a glass of this. Rated : 91 Points; Alcohol : 14%; Price : $32; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2012 - 2017; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

The 2010 Mourvedre has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and an earthy / meaty nose over a good core of ripe black fruits and a whiff of black olives. Full-bodied, rich and savory in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of chewy tannins making for a more structured style, which the finish is long with some peppered notes coming through. Drink it now to 2017+. Rating: 90 points; Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2013
