2018 Yangarra Rosé
|Region||McLaren Vale, SA|
Peter Fraser, winemaker, and Michael Lane, viticulturer, head the Yangarra brand, owned by the Jackson Family Wines since 2000. In the decade since, the vineyard has been revived and extended, the water-courses rejuvenated and planted to native vegetation. Certified biodynamic, the Yangarra philosophy centres around producing single-vineyard estate wines from healthy and alive soils. This involves the use of compost and biodynamic preparations, use of sheep in winter to graze under vine, and minimal mechanical soil disruption. There is no use of synthetic herbicides or fungicides. The vineyards are spread amongst an extra 70 hectares of creeks, native vegetation and nature corridors. Bush-vine Grenache is the keystone variety along with Shiraz, Mataro, Cinsault, and Carignan red varieties; Roussanne and Viognier are the major whites.
|Wine||Bush vine Grenache is picked early in the season capturing the pink lady apple crunchiness of the skins, leading to a very pale coloured, elegant and dry style of Rosé. Grenache displays delicate rose hip and strawberry aromas with a juicy crisp palate. Careful with this wine...it disappears quickly from your glass!|
|Tasting Note||Fresh Strawberry - Dry - Delicate|
