Yangarra Shiraz 2018 South Australia McLaren Vale

$27.95

Yangarra Shiraz 2018 .

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 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.

Sourced from six blocks within the estate. Approximately 50% on Sand, 50% on
Ironstone. Picked between the 21-29 March, destemmed and mechanically
sorted. 50% whole berries. We do a portion of our ferments with approximately
20% whole bunches. A splash of Viognier. Cold Soak. Open Fermenters.
Plunged. Wild yeast ferment. No pressings are used in this wine. Kept on lees in
20% new French oak, 80% older French oak for 10 months.
Bottled March 2019.
