About the Wine
Yangarra Estate are absolutely one of our very favourite producers and a winery that is making serious waves in the Australian wine industry.
This is the beginning of a large project for the Yangarra team.
Yangarra have every one of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape varieties planted on their Blewitt Springs vineyard. The plan is to eventually produce a blend from the 13 varieties allowed to grow in the famous French region. This white blend is the first step along the way.
It's a medium-bodied, savoury white wine with fresh, glassy texture and a briny finish. The perfect all-round food wine. An exciting, great value new release from this McLaren Vale juggernaut.
About Yangarra Estate
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.
