Yangarra Estate Select Dundee Hills Shiraz Syrah 2005
"Our vineyard is in the coolest parts of mclaren vale, giving our low yields times to slowly accumulate concentrated powerful flavours of blackberry and plums, with hints of spice. The open fermenters and wild yeast allow maximum extraction and complexity with soft silky tannins " Â Â Â Â Â Â PETER FRASER, Winemaker • 93 Points/Editors Choice, Wine Enthusiast-June 2007 • Double Gold, Florida State Fair International Wine Competition-February 2007 • Double Gold, Fingerlakes Int'l Wine Competition-April 2007 • Exceptional, Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences-August 2007 Region:100% McLaren Vale, 100% Estate Grown Varietal Composition:100% Shiraz Analysis:15.0% alcohol, pH 3.62, TA 0.65 g/100ml Maturation:18 months; 33% new, 33% one year old, 33% two years old; all 100% French oak barriques Production: 5,778 cases

Yangarra Single Estate Shiraz - 2005 92 POINTS - Robert Parker The 2005 Shiraz is purple-colored with an expressive perfume of cedar, smoke, game, blueberry, and blackberry. Full-bodied with a broad palate and mouth-coating fruit, it has outstanding depth, tons of black fruit flavor, and a long pure finish. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. Yangarra Estate Vineyards, whose first vintage was in 2000, was purchased by Jess Jackson in 2001. It is located in the Foothills/Blewitt Springs region of McLaren Vale. Grenache and Shiraz are the two principal varieties planted on the estate. The winery uses all wild ferments, 100% French oak, predominantly new.
