Yangarra Estate GSM 2016
95 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion
A 54/24/18% blend, wild yeast open-fermented, matured for 10 months in used French oak.
Magical, deep crimson; as devotees of Chateau Rayas, and others from the Rhone Valley will attest, grenache has many faces, the most admired in that part of France, its serious, long-lived, complex and structured single varietal pose.
But it's usually in a blend, and in Australia usually with shiraz and mourvedre, and this is a compelling example of all the individual flavours of its components.
