Yangarra Estate Vineyard Blanc Blend 2021 - McLaren Vale
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
Blanc is the result of years of research and exploration into the best white varieties hailing from the ancient north-west Mediterranean. Native to the southern Rhône, these Châteauneuf varieties have been traditionally blended for many years, encouraging our pursuit of a progressive Châteauneuf white blend on our southern coast. With careful vineyard management and a light handed approach in the winery, the Blanc showcases the vibrant, fresh and crunchy style these varieties provide in unison.
Yangarra Estate Vinayard Blanc, an innovative and unique blend of Rhone Valley white varieties new to Australia. The wine has weight and supple texture, mouth-filling and fresh at the same time. It's a delicious little wine and perfect for those looking for body and weight in a white wine.

The vineyard is certified Biodynamic (certification # 11587) with Australian Certified Organic. We have quite a practical approach, with our philosophy focused around healthy and alive soil. This involves the use of compost and biodynamic preparations, use of sheep in winter to graze under vine, and minimal mechanical soil disruption. There is no use of synthetic herbicides or fungicides.
This wine has been made quite simply, back to basics style, hand-picked and whole bunched pressed in a basket press. Due to the small quantities, we pressed and fermented all the new varieties together, as the ripeness was very similar, and we felt that we could care and nurture the wine better than in the tiny volumes we had of each variety. The Roussanne block is ten years older, ripening a little earlier, so was not included in the co-ferment.
The unclarified juice was fermented in 675 litres ceramic eggs, with no acid or sulphur additions. The resulting wine was then matured in ceramic eggs and the lees stirred monthly for that time. These varieties are supposedly very susceptible to oxidation, but we find we get better results not adding sulphur until after the primary sugar fermentation. No fining occurred, just filtration. Certified Organic/Biodynamic.
