2017 Yangarra Estate McLaren Vale Mourvedre
(Organic) (Vegan Friendly)
This is the Australian operation of the Jackson Family Wines, one of the leading wine producers in California. In 2000 they purchased the Normans vineyard with some very old vines (some dating back to 1923). They employed Peter Fraser to head up the winemaking and he’s been there ever since. The have moved to farm the vineyard organically. Their Mourvedre fruit is normally blended in with Grenache and Shiraz for their GSM blend but in exceptional years they produce a straight version. It produces a ballsy red wine, screaming out for a rich and hearty casserole. Aromas of dried herbs and a palate with lots of licorice and choc pudding flavours.
