2019 Yangarra PF Shiraz
|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||The PF Shiraz is made from grapes grown on our certified biodynamic single-estate vineyard, grown without herbicides, fungicides or synthetic chemicals. It is made without additions of any kind: sulphur (preservative), acid, tannin or finings. It’s a medium bodied, fresh, fruit driven wine that is delicious enjoyed as a young wine.|
