Description

Yangarra Noir 2019

62% Grenache, 15% Shiraz, 12% Mourvedre, 6% Carignan, 3% Cinsaut and 2% Counoise.

This is a blend of lots of unusual varieties. There's grenache, mourvedre and shiraz and then there is cinsault, carignan and counoise. This is just stunning and a perfect example of some of the fascinating wines that these guys are producing.

In this blend you see the perfect mix of seriousness and playfulness - Aromas of Red fruits - strawberries, raspberries and plum. On the palate, burst of juicy goodness with a tinge of pepper. it's light and crunchy on one hand and  precise and impeccably well built on the other.
This top value red is just the latest step on winemaker Peter Fraser's march towards recreating his own McLaren Vale examples of the famous bends of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Noir indeed - this lovely light-bodied, juicy wine is a voyage of discovery by the intrepid Peter Fraser. The grapes were mechanically sorted 50% whole berries, wild-fermented, 14-16 days on skins, matured for 6 months in used French oak. A wonderfully different wine, welcoming investigation, not hiding anything.


For the dollars, it's one of the most interesting and satisfying wines in the region at the moment and a super-versatile red for any occasion.

This is a savoury, mid-weight, well structured and well-fruited red with berry, licorice, iodine and floral notes curling persuasively throughout. The polish here, the tannin, the mouthfeel and the finish; all are top notch. In fact if you want to just lose yourself in a wine, this wine is a good candidate. Value is high.”
