2018 Yangarra Estate ‘Noir’ McLaren Vale Grenache Blend
(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. They have moved to farm the vineyard organically. The ‘Noir’ is Yangarra’s nod to the wines of the Cotes du Rhone. Old vine Grenache (72-year-old vines) makes up much of the wine, along with Mourvèdre, Shiraz & Cinsault. The resulting wine is soft, vibrant and punchy. It can be served softly chilled if you wish.
