Yangarra Estate Shiraz
Concentrated and complex with a heady illusion of sweet, dark fruit. The vineyard’s elevation and cooler climate give rise to blackberry and black plum, savory herbs, spice with chicory and juniper tannins and the faintest whiff of harness leather.

Yangarra is an aboriginal word meaning “from the earth,” and it is in this spirit that they make all our their wines. Yangarra Estate is a single vineyard located in the Blewitt Springs foothills of McLaren Vale – ten miles from the sparkling Gulf St. Vincent. The estate is 420 acres of vineyards, pastures, towering gum trees and creeks. This single-vineyard estate is separated into 35 individual blocks
shaped by terroir and farmed by soil type and vine age.
The key to Yangarra’s unique flavors is a large, smooth dune of Ngankipari
Sands, a wind blown geological formation derived from ancient Proterozoic bedrocks. A slightly cooler climate coupled with weathered sandy soils feed their Rhone varieties intense flavors, complexity and texture.
Shiraz from Yangarra's estate vineyard adopts more of a cooler climate expression than the typical McLaren Vale style. Vines making this wine are grown in the northeastern foothills of the Blewitt Springs district of McLaren Vale. The wine aged for 22 months in French Oak (20% new).
