Yangarra Shiraz 2018

JAMES HALLIDAY 96 POINTS! 
HUON HOOKE 95 POINTS! 

"From six estate blocks, 50% on sand, 50% ironstone. Destemmed and mechanically sorted whole berries and 20% whole bunches open-fermented with a splash of viognier, 10 months in French oak (20% new). Dark fruits with earth, chocolate and licorice nuances. Sensational price." - Wine Companion 

"Deep, bright red/purple colour. Fresh and clean on the nose, with berries, cherries and spices to sniff. Really lovely aromas and flavours, understated and still evolving. The palate is fine and long with supple tannins and great harmony. A superb glass of shiraz."Huon Hooke 

"Sourced from six blocks across the Yangarra Estate. Roughly 50% on sand, the other half on ironstone. Its temper is even, its flavour is substantial. This wine is as balanced as they come... Tannin drains back through the wine in an even flow. It’s in overall excellent shape and is, as so often, very good buying" - Wine Front 

"Shiraz from our Estate vineyard adopts more of a cooler climate expression than the typical McLaren Vale style thanks to the vineyards elevation and the cooling night breezes from the nearby Southern Lofty, but retains concentration and complexity." Yangarra
