2020 Yangarra, Roussanne, McLaren Vale
This wine showcases McLaren Vale’s under-recognised complexities and diversity of soils. It displays how the right terroir being chosen with insight and understanding results in a wonderfully impressive wine. The sheer attractiveness and alluring fruit on offer here, matched with the cleverly judged structure and shape, makes it a standout wine. 
19 year old Roussanne vines are planted over two blocks totalling 2.5 hectares in soils of weathered sands mixed with ironstone gravels. 
The grapes are hand-picked and carefully basket-pressed with only 60% of the extractable juice to eliminate any potential broadness. No sulphites are added, and the juice is transferred to barrel without any settling or fining, where it underwent wild yeast fermentation. 
The wine is matured for 7 months, the lees retained and stirred monthly, with just filtration. 
This is seriously distinguished McLaren Vale white, restrained yet vibrant with savoury aromatics and stone frui
