Yangarra Estate Chardonnay Mclaren Vale Single Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Chardonnay is lively, fresh and vibrant, with loads of citrus and tropical fruits. There is no oak or malolactic fermentaion to adulterate and spoil pure fruit bliss. The lees stiring and wild yeast bring complexity and hints of a soft creamy finish. Peaches and cream anyone?"       PETER FRASER, Winemaker • Critics Award, 2007 Critics Challenge international Wine Competition Region: 100% McLaren Vale, 100% Estate Grown Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay Analysis: 13.5% alcohol, pH 3.31, TA 0.65 g/100ml Maturation: Tank fermentation, with 4 months yeast lees contact Production: 2,200 cases

Yangarra is an aboriginal word meaning "from the earth." All of our wines are grown on our single-vineyard Estate in the Blewitt Springs sub region of McLaren Vale, South Australia, with 250 acres of vines in 35 individual blocks spread amongst 420 acres of creeks, native vegetation and nature corridors. The Estate sits at the north-eastern extreme of the Willunga Basin at the foot of the South Mount Lofty Ranges. We are utterly devoted to minimal intervention in viticulture and winemaking. Our desire is to produce wines that are the most brilliant possible reflection of the Estate's unique terroir and provide a profound sense of place. The key to Yangarra's unique flavours is a large, smooth dune of Ngankipari Sand, a precisely-delineated Aeolian, or wind-blown geological formation that was laid down about a million years ago (which is very young in Australia's ancient geology). This sand is an extremely weathered remnant of mountain ranges that stood here 1.6 billion years ago, weathered away, and then rose again 500 million years ago. After a second weathering, the current ranges began to rise about 100 million years ago. Read less
