About the Wine

Year after year, Yangarra produces some stellar white wines. Their reds may get the lion's share of the press but for scintillating versions of Rhone white's, few can match the impeccable track record of this McLaren Vale powerhouse.

This Viognier is widely considered one of the country's premier examples, renowned for displaying much more freshness and subtlety than the variety often shows.

It's picked early, wild yeast fermented and matured on its lees for several months, all of which result in a much more intriguing and restrained Viognier, without sacrificing any of the variety's famous flavour and oomph.

As always, there is limited availability for this release - only a small amount is ever made. So if you want to the chance to try this wine, you'll have to act quick!

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

Aromas of dried apricots, honeysuckle, melons, almonds and ginger. The palate is definitely rich and unctuous without being at all oily, with layers of ripe fruit and some really nice mixed spices. It's the acidity though that separates this Viognier from so many, keeping it fresh and balanced. - Different Drop Wine Team
