Yangarra Estate Wines
Yangarra Estate is situated above a rich basin of vineyards in the Foothills/Blewitt Springs area in McLaren Vale, South Australia.
They specialize in Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. 420 acres of vineyards, pastures, towering native red gums (eucalyptus), natural creeks and dams are what we call the home of Yangarra Estate Vineyard wines. Nestled at the base of the Mount Lofty/Sellicks Hill ranges that surround McLaren Vale, our vineyards experience slightly cooler temperatures than that of the central basin of McLaren Vale. Yangarra Estate only selects fruit from the top appellations of Australia, then uses both Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates and Australian innovative winemaking approach to produce varietal wines of inimitable quality. Grenache and Shiraz are the major varieties grown on the estate.
Yangarra Estate Wine makers
Australian winemaker, Peter Fraser, teamed up with KJWE's Winemaster Randy Ullon to blend and bottle Yangarra Park wines in the famous Barossa Valley of South Australia. Peter brings his widely regarded depth and breadth of knowledge of each of Australia's finest winemaking regions. Peter's deft and cosmopolitan wine style results from more than eight years experience in the Australian wine industry.
Peter spends most of his time in Australia, making the Yangarra Estate Vineyard wines and since 2003 he has been travelling to the United States during harvest, as consulting winemaker for Jackson Family's Syrah programs in Santa Barbara, California.
Whilst not one for singing his own praises, Peter has gained great acclaim and award for our Yangarra Estate Vineyard wines, including the great result for our 2001 Appellation Series McLaren Vale Shiraz being selected in the 2003 Wine Spectator Top 100 wines.
Yangarra Estate Shiraz 2011
Yangarra Shiraz walks the tightrope between finesse and concentration. It has a stylish perfume of lemon pith (unusual for Shiraz), lipstick, raspberries and juniper. The aromas are vibrant and explosive. Deep and rich this wine has intense aromas with a bouquet of fruits and spices. Flavors are sweet with cherries and blackberries shining and oak pushing through. The palate is concentrated and seductively lush with black fruits, spicy dark chocolate, hints of vanilla bean and soft, grainy tannins.

Yangarra Estate Grenache 2012
From bush vines planted in 1946 high on Yangarra Estate’s deep sandy soils, our Old Vine Grenache is complex, elegant and enticing. The soil from 60 million year old geological formation, that looks like a beach, like white beach sand, the locals nicknamed it "the beach". Old gnarly vines, tough as nails, produce incredibly rich and intense flavors of dark fruits, with velvety tannins, yet with inviting perfume of fresh roses. "A highly complex, intense beauty, with cherry and plums giving way to hints of licorice, dried spring flowers, cocoa and cinnamon spice. The palate is driven and concentrated, with fine sandy mineral tannins.” - Peter Fraser, Winemaker.
