Yangarra Estate

Yangarra Estate Noir 2022, McLaren Vale, SA

by | Apr 24, 2024

Yangarra Estate is establishing themselves as the Rhone specialists in Australia in both their red and white wines. This is a blend of grenache noir, carignan, cinsaut, counoise, shiraz and mourvèdre. It’s a lovely fruit driven wine with plums and floral notes, in a carbonic maceration style (think Beaujolais). On the palate there is a pleasant surprise, with a nice tannin spine in the wine that gives it a bit more structure than one would expect in a light to medium bodied wine.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
