About the Wine

If you're looking for a 'natural' red wine that goes down easily, then the 2017 Yangarra PF Shiraz is sure to please.

Coming from Yangarra's certified organic and biodynamic McLaren Vale vineyard, this sees no additions whatsoever in both vineyard and winery. The cold 2017 vintage has resulted in an incredibly vibrant and juicy style, just bursting with pure Shiraz fruit.

A great introduction to the stunning wines of Yangarra, and amazing value for a wine as naturally grown and made as they come.

About Yangarra

Yangarra Estate is one of a small group of powerhouse wineries to raise its head from the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale. Their wines are made entirely from an amazing old bush vine single vineyard, with the 2016 Halliday Winemaker of the Year, Peter Fraser, pulling the reins as winemaker. They are a certified biodynamic wine producer, and have even been named International Winery of the Year, twice!

They specialise in varieties found in the Rhone Valley. In the reds, their Grenache is as good as any in the land and is truly world class, with Shiraz and Mourvedre not far behind. The same applies to whites, the Roussanne expressions from Fraser’s experimentation with ceramic eggs are some of the most interesting in the country. In time, each of the 13 Rhone varieties will be grown on the Yangarra block.

A premium benchmark for the Blewitt Springs sub-region, and one of the country's modern day icon producers.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

It's vivacious and jubilant for a McLaren Vale Shiraz. Pops from the glass with plum, licorice, boysenberry and soft pepper tones. It's juicy to taste, ripe but with solid, sandy tannins. So youthful. So unadorned. So much guilt free fun in a bottle. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From the Producer

The PF 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.

VINEYARD INFORMATION


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.

WINEMAKING INFORMATION


Shiraz from Block 19 were picked and received via a belt elevator and de-stemmed. Whole berries were double sorted before being lightly broken going into a small open-top fermenters.  No additives were used for the wine’s entire production.  As with all of our wines, after a few days cold soaking, we allowed natural yeast fermentation and used a careful regime of plunging and drain and returns to get the right balance of extraction.  The wine was carefully pressed after 10 days on skins and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation prior to bottling with no additions, or fining, just filtration. Bottled in June 2017. Certified Biodynamic.
