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.
Hand-picked from vines planted in '46, wild yeast open-fermented. It only takes a millisecond in the mouth for the wine to establish its varietal purity and generosity. It is supple, round and deeply satisfying, red and purple fruits to the fore, fine-grained tannins bringing up the rear.

Deep, bright red/purple colour, the bouquet savoury and reserved, showing earthy, dry spice, hot-clay aromas. It’s at the savoury end of the spectrum as opposed to grapy. The wine has a smell and taste that reminds of the ceramic vessels in which some of it may have been fermented. The palate is again very dry, savoury and terrestrial - as opposed to fruity. Good intensity, depth and drive, with abundant drying tannins that compound the non-fruity personality of the wine. Pepper, clove and other dry spice aromas and flavours rise out of the wine the longer it's in the glass. A food wine, to be sure.
