Overview

2018 was a text book growing season with good winter rains, and favourable weather conditions during a very mild spring. We had a generally dry summer, which led to earlier than expected picking dates, especially with lower than average yields. By the end of February and early March the Autumnal nights got quite cool, enabling the flavour ripeness to catch up with the sugar.

The vineyard is certified Biodynamic (certification # 11587) with Australian Certified Organic. We have quite a practical approach, with our philosophy focused around healthy and alive soil. This involves the use of compost and biodynamic preparations, use of sheep in winter to graze under vine, and minimal mechanical soil disruption. There is no use of synthetic herbicides or fungicides.

Expert Reviews

90 Points Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front Sept 2018: This is an especially good release of this highly likeable shiraz. It’s so vibrant, has such good volume, and has such a good refreshment factor. Wins all the way along. Plums, cherries and cloves, a spot of hay, florals maybe. It slips down a treat. It’s a ‘more please’ wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

PF (Preservative Free) Shiraz is made from grapes grown on our certified biodynamic single-estate vineyard, grown without herbicides, fungicides or synthetic chemicals. It is made without additions of any kind: sulphur (preservative), acid, tannin or finings. It’s medium bodied, fresh, fruit driven wine that is delicious enjoyed as a young wine. With that in mind, we do have PF shiraz back to our first vintage of 2013 that is still showing some of lovely vibrant characters.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Yangarra philosophy centres around producing wines solely from our single-vineyard estate, where our bush-vine Grenache is the keystone variety.

With our feet firm in history, and our eyes on the horizon, Yangarra Estate now exists to deliver the essence of this beautiful place to your glass. McLaren Vale folks like to think that their region on the Gulf St Vincent, patron of viticulturers, has “the best Mediterranean climate on Earth.” 

With this foremost in mind, Yangarra Estate is devoted solely to producing wines from the best grape varieties of the southern Rhone, which lies on the north-west Mediterranean coast.

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.

Our respect of this special piece of country is evident in the wines we make from its grapes - every Yangarra Estate wine is a confident reflection of the nature of this land.
