"50% whole berries, 50% destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented, matured for 10 months in used French oak. Just another $30 McLaren Vale shiraz? Absolutely not. 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." 97 points, James Halliday
Vineyard: Shiraz adopts a very different form at Yangarra than the typical McLaren Vale style, and is more akin to the cooler climate styles. Our single vineyard estate has twelve individual blocks of Shiraz. Each block is defined by different aspects and subtle variations of the sand and Ironstone soils that overlie the ancient North Maslin Sands geological formation.
Winemaking: Cold soaked 5-6 days, wild yeast fermented, 15 months maturation in 75% older, 25% new French oak, no fining just filtration.
Approximately 10% whole bunches were used with 50% of the fruit remaining as whole berries. Mechanically sorted before going into open-top fermenters. Cold soaked until the onset of wild-fermentation, utilising the yeasts that naturally come in with the grapes from the vineyard. A careful regime of plunging and rack and returns. The resulting wine was kept on lees in 25% new French oak, 75% older French oak for 12 months. No fining, just filtration.
Vintage: The 2016 growing season was marked by a very dry spring it intially seemed as if we were headed for a very early and compressed season. Summer came along, bringing with it some mild rains which slowed down the sugar ripening of the vines. This helped to give brightness and fleshiness to the wines of this vintage.
