Recommendations

Expert Reviews

93 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionUltra-pale partridge eye hue; early-picked estate fruit produces a spicy/savoury wine that has wild strawberry flavours within a bone dry compass. If there are no Spanish restaurants available, go Italian - either will work.
91 Points - Toni Paterson MW - The Real ReviewUltra-pale dusty pink colour. High-toned aromatics of candy floss, red apple, juniper and rosewater. The palate is brimming with musk, strawberry and sherbet. Incredible intensity of flavour, particularly on the front palate. Zippy and intense. Made from bush-vine grenache. Certified organic/biodynamic.'

How's it taste?

They pick their bush vine Grenache early in the season capturing the pink lady apple crunchiness of the skins, leading to a very pale coloured, elegant and dry style of Rosé. Grenache displays delicate rose hip and strawberry aromas with a juicy crisp palate.

How was it made?

The grapes were sourced from a combination of bush vines that were planted in 2009 and 1946 on Yangarra's single-vineyard estate. The fruit was hand-picked over two separate dates; 16th and 23rd February (fruit/flower days). As much as picking is based on sugar and acid balance (and importantly physiological characters) also considered is the biodynamic calendar where possible, with fruit days and flower days being the most desirable for harvest, and root days avoided. Elegant and dry style of Rosé, juicy crisp palate.

Who made it?

The Yangarra philosophy centers 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.
