$22.50: as part of any six
$25.00: single bottle
$270.00: per case of 12

Lifted fragrance, with bright flavour and vibrant acidity.  2018 was a text book growing season, with good winter rains, and favourable weather conditions during a very mild spring. We had a generally dry summer, which led to earlier than expected picking dates, especially with lower than average yields. By the end of February and early march the Autumnal nights got quite cool, which really slowed down the ripening process.

Australian Wine Review
At the end of 2018 I made a wish-list of 3 things I’d like to see more of in 2019. And number 1 on the list was a request for more well-priced light reds. Now, 4 months into the year, I’ve found EXACTLY what I was after. This Yangarra Estate Noir 2018 is more than just a good value drink, however, it’s a watershed wine. Something that can change perspectives about what Australian red wine should/could taste like. Amazing. It’s a blend of 40% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 14% Shiraz, 12% Cinsaut, 11% Carignan, 2% Counoise from estate-grown, certified organic fruit. So Chateauneuf, but in McLaren Vale. Fruit is hand-picked and mechanically sorted, with 50% whole berries in the mix, the juice wild fermented before spe

It's only April and perhaps we've seen the bargain of the year. Wickedly juicy, one glass just isn't enough. The latest addition to the Yangarra Estate range, the brand's ongoing commitment to Rhone varieties has delivered this blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Shiraz, Cinsault, Carignan and Counoise 40/21/14/12/11/2. Handpicked, 50% whole berries, wild yeast ferment with 100% old French oak for 10 months. Certified organic and biodynamic. Flirtatious and dancy, this is a wine that screams nothing but pleasure. Earthy with some funk, but it's the absolute shower of red and blackberry fruit that just oozes charm. Medium bodied, the generous flow of fruit caresses the mouth filling every crevice with ease. Super smooth with the slurp factor sky h

Taut and snappy with fabulous vibrancy. It is tight, youthful, and all about the fruit. A modern, high-energy style with a vibrant red-fruit core. The Real Review, 19 May, 2019

Producers notes

The Yangarra philosophy centres around producing wines solely from our single-vineyard estate, where our bush-vine Grenache is the keystone variety.

With our feet firm in history, and our eyes on the horizon, Yangarra Estate now exists to deliver the essence of this beautiful place to your glass.  

McLaren Vale folks like to think that their region on the Gulf St Vincent, patron of viticulturers, has “the best Mediterranean climate on Earth.”  With this foremost in mind, Yangarra Estate is devoted solely to producing wines from the best grape varieties of the southern Rhone, which lies on the north-west Mediterranean coast.Yangarra’s combination of rare geologies, moderate altitude, abundant sunshine and cool evening breezes make it perfect for growing varieties that thrive in these moderate maritime environments.

Our respect of this special piece of country is evident in the wines we make from its grapes - every Yangarra Estate wine is a confident reflection of the nature of this land.
