About the Wine
This is an amazingly aromatic and delicate Rosé from biodynamically farmed Grenache grown in the sandy soils of McLaren Vale.
Yangarra pick the Grenache for this wine early in the season. It's amazing you can get a Rosé of this class and elegance from such wonderful old vines, for this price.
It's a dead set bargain.
Think Rosehip tea, roses, musk sticks and flowers and you're heading in the right direction.
It drinks dry but the riot of perfume and delicate spice keep you coming back to the glass. Fabulous stuff from winemaker Peter Fraser and team.
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.
