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.
Sourced from Block 30, planted in 1946, which is adjacent to the High Sands Block. Hand-picked and mechanically berry sorted. 100% destemmed, crushed and tipped into 675L ceramic eggs. The fermentation occurred in the eggs and remained on skins for 158 days post fermentation. No pressings are used in this wine. Matured exclusively in the ceramic eggs for another 5 months
Hand picked, mechanically berry sorted and 100% destemmed and crushed into ceramic eggs, where fermentation occurred. On skins for a whooping 101 days. No oak, merely further egg time for 8 months. I have adored each iteration of this cuvée since its inception. This is no exception. A pallid ruby. Brilliant aromas of woodsmoke, campfire, orange peel and sour cherry, sapid and intense. The mid-weighted palate is framed by a spindly web of tannins that are almost chiffon-like as much as granular, edgy and nebbiolo-esque. Less mid-palate mettle than in the past, but delicious earlier drinking.

A quite light red and bright colour in the glass. The aromas are elegant, lifted and fragrant, with red cherry, spice, rose water and a splash of talc. Flavours are refined and incredibly textural, with the red-fruited cherry and raspberry elements being driven by this savoury, very grippy, grainy tannin that coats the mouth and gives the wine some serious, chalky, sophisticated mouth-feel.

Rose hip tea, lipstick, cherry and dried herb scents. So pure, shimmering, silky and yet wrapped in a web of ultra fine, wet stone tannins. Magnificent texture. Purity, drive, vibrancy, a beautiful lightweight yet detailed wine of incredible energy and poise. So delicious. So very, very good. World beating stuff. Benchmark.
