Why do we love it, you ask?

This Shiraz from the certified organic and biodynamic Yangarra vineyard will knock your socks off. Just to start, the gorgeous deep purple colour and notes of dark chocolate make it a wine to impress.

This Shiraz is as smooth as Idris Elba meeting your parents. And I know I would want a taste of that. The Shiraz I mean.

Grape: Shiraz

Vintage: 2016

Region: McLaren Vale

Alcohol: 14.5%

Some of the Shiraz was harvested at night and received by way of a belt elevator and only de-stemmed. Whole berries were double sorted before going into open-top fermenters. Hand picked parts of blocks meant some whole bunch ferments within the final blend. The winemakers cold-soaked the fermentation tanks for 5-6 days until the onset of wild-fermentation, utilising the yeasts that naturally come in with the grapes from the vineyard.

The open fermenters underwent a careful regime of plunging and rack and returns. The wine was then sent to French barriques (approximately 20% New oak) after about 12-14 days and kept on the yeast lees prior to blending. The wine received no fining, just filtration.

This certified biodynamic wine is a vibrant crimson-purple colour, with aromas and flavours of black fruits and dark chocolate abundant in the wine.

The full weighted palate is filled with eloquent tannins, which provide a powerful structure and smooth texture to this Shiraz.

This is profoundly exciting, another masterpiece from Peter Fraser, Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year ’16. It’s not often I’m tempted to sneakily swallow half a mouthful of a wine, it’s almost as if an unseen force refuses to let me actually drink a little. The wine is spicy, textured, with a rainbow of dark fruit flavours – bloody gorgeous.

A highly captivating wine with a perfect balance between the sweet and the savoury. Sourced from established vines, ranging in age from 19 – 23 years, it is a shiraz with excellent fruit depth. There is a snappy character to the fruit on the front palate followed by impressive back palate concentration and length. Although it can be enjoyed now, it will be even better with some time in the cellar. A sophisticated, finely-crafted wine. Highly recommended.
