Yangarra Estate Vineyard Shiraz 2018

“This wine has a heady illusion of sweetness and confection, and after that lovely slender syrup establishes itself, the oozes of prune and black-berry emerge, and entwine with the dark chicory and juniper tannins and the faintest whiff of harness leather. All over the primary fruit and vegetation, it begins to prickle like summer, with smells of rain on hot sunbaked sandstone and rusty galvo, and explosives in the quarry.” - Peter Fraser, Winemaker

 

James Halliday 96 Points
From six estate blocks, 50% on sand, 50% ironstone. Destemmed and mechanically sorted whole berries and 20% whole bunches open-fermented with a splash of viognier, 10 months in French oak (20% new). Dark fruits with earth, chocolate and licorice nuances. Sensational price.

A dense deep red to purple hue, a characteristic that is common across the Yangarra reds. The nose centres on plum and blackberry fruit with liquorice strap and unsweetened cocoa. The dark fruits on the nose take a more vibrant, almost blue fruit like aspect with juicy acidity and fine tannin giving the lattice for oak to gently interject with the wine providing layers of flavour and interest. The finish sees more savoury almost peppery impact with length of dark berry fruits.

I remember tasting samples of this from barrel with Peter Fraser back in April, 2018. It looked fabulous then in its infancy and it is even better now. An incredible wine for the asking price. Blue fruits come in spades. Coming off Yangarra's certified biodynamic and organic vineyards, it's a wine with wonderful and engaging depth. Those berry flavours get in deep, a result of 50% whole berries used with approximately 20% whole bunches. Violet and purple flower perfume diffuse elegantly from the glass. A little bit ferrous and a little bit minerally, white pepper and earthy feels add interest. There's no chance of evading the generous fruit mind you. It pulsates in gentle waves. Fine tannins draw a long bow and persist much longer than expected finishing dusty and powdery. Utterly delicious! Drink to ten years+

Deep, bright red/purple colour. Fresh and clean on the nose, with berries, cherries and spices to sniff. Really lovely aromas and flavours, understated and still evolving. The palate is fine and long with supple tannins and great harmony. A superb glass of shiraz.
