2014 Yangarra Estate McLaren Vale Shiraz

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is all about texture. Right from the start its tannins work the oral receptors beautifully, setting the digestive juices running and triggering the anticipation of food. This stimulation is then rewarded by the juicy fruits, as the flavours of all sorts of dark berries swim about the glass and the sensories, soothing as much as exciting. The meaty blueberry hint is sometimes like prosciutto or other dark charcuterie meats; the figgy base tones provide a solid base flavour, the cleansing natural acidity working with the tannins to draw the finish out to a delicious taper with a long aftertaste where those cherries evident in the bouquet re-emerge, sinuous and more-ish.

2014 Yangarra Estate McLaren Vale Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
Estate-grown, 50% whole berries, 25% whole bunches cold soaked, open-fermented, wild yeast, matured in French oak (25% new) for 13 months. Everything falls into place, the design of the jigsaw puzzle taking shape post haste. McLaren Vale fruit essence, with black fruits and potent dark chocolate looking as much to the sky as the earth, the whole bunch elements adding a twist to the main design, eloquent tannins also making a significant contribution.
