There are few wineries in Australia with as clear a vision as Yangarra. Their commitment to producing world class, Australian grown, Rhone style wines is second to none. Combine that with a keen eye for exceptional terroir and the formidable winemaking skills of Peter Fraser and you are looking at one of the most exciting wine ventures in the country. Their High Sands Grenache is a wine to behold. The industry hubbub around this wine is palpable. It has been compared to the great Grenaches of Chateauneuf du Pape, iconic wines like Rayas and Beaucastel, just to be mentioned in the same discussion is nothing short of incredible for an Aussie wine. Gary Walsh gave it 96 points. And rightfully so, Peter thinks this is better than the previous vintage and we agree. This release of the High Sands marks another step forward in the assertion of truly great Australian wines on the world stage. If you want to see the very best Grenache that Australia has to offer, the High Sands is simply remarkable and a drinking experience that will stay with you for many years to come.

What it Tastes Like

"Very earthy, peppery and spicy, boot polish, Old Jamaica chocolate, dried roses, raspberry, cherries, dried mint – so much going on! Medium bodied, deeply fruited, tannic, but in a very silky way (likely that will make sense should you taste it). Plush raspberry flavour, meat and spices, fresh acidity, distinct ‘mineral’ feel. Long and almost blackcurranty in the aftertaste, with a trail of fine silty tannin. A vin de garde; feels unevolved and painfully young at present. Challenging. I thought about it. And thought some more. Drank some. Then drank some more. And in the end? A conclusion and a score." - Gary Walsh
