“The 2012 is a classic Yangarra Shiraz, with bright black fruits and black peppercorn spice. There are layers of complexity with chocolate and charcuterie, woven together with fine grainy tannins.”
- Peter Fraser, Winemaker
Yangarra is a biodynamic wine farm in the northeast of the McLaren Vale region in South Australia. Our philosophy centres around producing single-vineyard wines from the best varieties of the southern Rhone, as our estate’s rare geologies, moderate altitude, abundant sunshine and cool evening breezes make it perfect for varieties that thrive in moderate maritime environments. Our respect for this special piece of country is shown in the wines we make, every one is a confident reflection of the nature of this land.
“Deep garnet-purple in color and showing aromas of blackcurrants, black plums and baker’s chocolate with hints of tree bark, charcoal and bacon fat, the medium-bodied 2012 Shiraz is tightly knit on the palate with ripe tannins and fruit that are both elegant and nicely expressed in the mouth. It finishes with good persistence. Drink it now to 2018+.”
