Yangarra Estate is a biodynamic wine farm in the McLaren Vale region in South Australia. 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. 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.
62% Grenache, 15% Shiraz, 12% Mourvedre, 6% Carignan, 3% Cinsaut and 2% Counoise
This is a blend of lots of unusual varieties. There's grenache, mourvedre and shiraz and then there is cinsault, carignan and counoise. This is just stunning and a perfect example of some of the fascinating wines that these guys are producing. A wine you just want to keep gnawing at.

Noir indeed - this lovely light-bodied, juicy wine is a voyage of discovery by the intrepid Peter Fraser. The grapes were mechanically sorted 50% whole berries, wild-fermented, 14-16 days on skins, matured for 6 months in used French oak. A wonderfully different wine, welcoming investigation, not hiding anything. 62% grenache, 15% shiraz, 12% mourvedre, 6% carignan, 3% cinsaut and 2% counoise.
