DESCRIPTION
  • The Yangarra GSM is a careful blending of grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre. Bright and perfumed with chewy earth and spice characters, this is a fine example of what an evenly spread palate tastes like. A wine with a backbone of old bush vine Grenache planted in the 1940’s. This wine will continue to evolve with cellaring, but can also be enjoyed in its youth alongside barbequed meats.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The grapes from each block were hand-picked, de-stemmed and mechanically sorted. Whole berries were then transferred to open-top fermenters. We cold soaked the fermentation tanks for 5 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 drain and returns.

    The 2016 growing season was marked by a dry spring and was headed for a very early and compressed season. We had some mild summer rains which slowed the sugar ripening of the vines down, and helped give brightness and fleshiness to vintage.

  • REVIEWS

    'Magical, deep crimson; as devotees of chateau Rayas and others from the Rhone Valley will attest, Grenache has many faces, the most admired in that pan of France is its serious, long-lived, complex and structured single-varietal pose. But it's usually in a blend, and in Australia, usually with Shiraz and Mourvedre. This is a compelling example of all the individual flavours of its components.'
