Editorial Reviews for Yangarra Estate Shiraz Mclaren Vale
The nose here shows attractive complexity and even subtlety with it’s blend of cinnamon, tar, cracked pepper, floral, dried fruit and vanilla and coconut aromas. Smooth, polished, rich and slightly chewy this delivers a lot of impact in the mouth with just a hint of excess weight. The flavors are deep with dried and fresh black plum and blackberry notes all supported by well judged oak and fine spice character. The tannins are ripe and fine here and the acid supportive and well integrated. The long finish reprises the tar note found on the nose but wraps it up in great rich berry fruit and spice notes. This is delicious and well balanced but it sure ain’t shy. 91pts

External Reviews for Yangarra Estate Shiraz Mclaren Vale
This Shiraz walks the tightrope between finesse and concentration. It hasa stylish perfume of lemon pith (unusual for Shiraz), lipstick, raspberries and juniper. The aromas are vibrant and explosive. The palate is concentrated and seductively lush with black fruits, spicy dark chocolate, hints of vanilla bean and soft, grainy tannins.
James Halliday (2014): "Berry sorting, 12% whole bunches, pre-fermentation cold soak and some carbonic maceration, wild yeast fermented, and kept on lees in French oak (20% new) for over 12 months has produced the best shiraz yet from Yangarra. Medium- to full-bodied, it has multiple layers of juicy black fruits, plus touches of licorice and dark chocolate supported by ripe tannins on the long finish." <strong>94 points</strong>
