2019 Blanc

2019 Yangarra Estate Vineyard Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc (74%), Roussanne (12%), Clairette (6%), Picpoul (5%) and Bourboulenc (3%).

An Australian first; a heat resilient blend of white varieties sourced in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and grown on newly planted cuttings here on our single-vineyard Estate in McLaren Vale.

Blanc is the result of years of research and quarantine of the best white varieties we can find amongst the ancient north-west Mediterranean vine types. The fact that these Châteauneuf varieties have been successfully blended for so many years encouraged us to pursue this direction. On the back of Grenache Noirs success in our region, it seemed logical to pursue Châteauneuf’s top whites on our southern coast.

Vintage Report

The 2019 growing season was a very dry, which resulted in incredibly low yields. We had a relatively warm lead up to the ripening period, which produced a very condensed and fast harvest. These late ripening varieties faired very well in a season like this, giving rise to concentration, freshness of flavour and marked natural acidity.

Reviews

2018 VINTAGE

94 Points James Halliday Halliday Wine Companion:  In other hands less skilled this could be an orange wine, not a bright, crisp, racy mix of stone fruit, citrus and allspice
