Winemaker's Notes:

Our estate vineyard is planted in 60 million-year-old sands -- some of the oldest soils in Australia. These ancient soils produce wines with lifted fruit, good colour and rich, soft tannins. The opulent aromas of this Shiraz, the dark fruits of plum and black cherries, and the perfectly finessed spice echo with history and a solemn reverence to the soil. This steadfast respect for our unique terroir is reflected in the name of our estate: Yangarra in Aboriginal means "from the earth." Faithfully.
