Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The immediate illusion of sweetness and confection of blackberry fruit is entwined with dark chicory and juniper tannins and the faintest whiff of harness leather. The primary fruit character begins to prickle like summer with smells of rain on hot sunbaked sandstone.

Critical Acclaim

"Berry sorting, 12% whole bunches, pre-fermentation cold soak and some carbonic maceration, wild yeast fermented, and kept on lees in French oak (20% new) for over 12 months has produced the best shiraz yet from Yangarra (other than Small Pot). Medium- to full-bodied, it has multiple layers of juicy black fruits, plus touches of licorice and dark chocolate supported by ripe tannins on the long finish."
94 Points

"Deep, smooth and juicy with rich blackberry and cassis; bright, tangy and nicely structured; seamless, intense and nicely balanced; long and stylish."
91 Points

"Saturated ruby. Pungent, spice- and smoke-accented aromas of blackcurrant, cherry pit and pipe tobacco, with a peppery topnote adding vivacity. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Finishes spicy and long, with fine-grained tannins and a jolt of cracked pepper."

The nose draws you in. There's a fruitiness with depth that delineates on the tongue. It is well worth its 91 point rating.
