WINERY INFORMATION

Yangarra Estate is popular for being one of the few biodynamic wine farms across Australia. Situated in the reputed McLaren vale wine region of South Australia, Yangarra follows the philosophy of creating wines solely from their single vineyard estate. Their winemaking team is skilled at creating lavish and elegant wines of surprising quality and flavour.

TASTING NOTES

Grenache grapes used to produce this wine were carefully handpicked and wild yeast fermented. Matured in 6-month old French oak barriques for about 12 months, the wine developed juicy fruit characters. Finally, the wine juice was filtered without fining. The result is a dark violet hued Grenache wine tasting absolutely marvellous. The bouquet is a fusion of spiced dark fruits and floral fragrances. The fine, intense and strong palate structure boasts of rich dark fruit flavours integrated with a well-balanced acidity and tight, juicy tannins. Tapas, fish, veal and Mediterranean dishes taste splendid with the Yangarra Estate Vineyard High Sands Grenache 2013.

96 points - Vintage 2013, Gary Walsh The Wine Front, March 2016

"271 cases. 210 meters above sea level. 1946 planting. Only old oak. 50% whole bunch. 2012 was very easy to judge in the glass, while this 2013 took a while to get my head around. As an aside, a Nebbiolo/Burgundy glass ended up being the best vessel for delivery of this wine. Needs a decent or plenty of air if you open one now.

Very earthy, peppery and spicy, boot polish, Old Jamaica chocolate, dried roses, raspberry, cherries, dried mint – so much going on! Medium bodied, deeply fruited, tannic, but in a very silky way (likely that will make sense should you taste it). Plush raspberry flavour, meat and spices, fresh acidity, distinct ‘mineral’ feel. Long and almost blackcurrant in the aftertaste, with a trail of fine silty tannin. A Vin de Garde; feels unevolved and painfully young at present. Challenging. I thought about it. And thought some more. Drank some. Then drank some more. And in the end? A conclusion and a score."
