About

Yangarra are one of the country’s leaders in producing the varieties from the Rhone Valley. Case in point being this excellent single varietal bottling of Roussanne.

It is widely considered one of Australia’s finest examples of what the variety is capable of.

The fruit is all biodynamically grown and picked by hand, with only 60% of juice pressed. It’s fermented with wild yeasts, and left for 7 months on lees in barrel where it undergoes further stirring for added texture and complexity.

The 2016 exudes class and restraint. A benchmark for the variety here in Australia.

What It Tastes Like

It’s a wine of quiet confidence. Graceful tension and a slippery waxy character. Nuts and pears, honeycomb and wheat. It glides on well oiled wheels. Feel the grip and the drive. It’s wound up now and is going to look great in time. Drink room temperature, decant. Sit and contemplate.
