Yangarra Estate 'PF' Shiraz [Organic & Biodynamic] (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
A pretty fab Preservative Free and biodynamic Shiraz from Peter Fraser, Australian Winemaker of the Year 2016.
This winery is serious about its wine and terroir, having stripped out all non-Rhône varietals to concentrate on what naturally works best in this area. The viticulturist is Michael Lane. PF stands for preservative free (and Peter Fraser). The PF Shiraz is made from grapes grown on Yangarra’s certified biodynamic single-estate vineyard, grown without herbicides, fungicides or synthetic chemicals. It is made without additions of any kind: sulphur (preservative), acid, tannin or finings. Shiraz was hand-picked from select blocks and received via a belt elevator (rather than a screw hopper which macerates the skins) and only de-stemmed. Whole berries were double sorted before being lightly broken and then placed into small open-top fermenters. No additives were used for the wine’s entire production. As with all of our wines, after a few days cold soaking, we allowed natural yeast fermentation and used a careful regime of plunging, and drain and returns to get the right balance of extraction. The wine was carefully pressed after 11 days on skins and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation prior to bottling, with no additions or fining, just filtration.
This wine is bottled within weeks of being harvested and the result in primary fruit takes you on a journey of evolution in the bottle so that you can never be entirely sure which flavours you will enjoy on any given day. This makes it a hugely energetic drop to follow and in spite of its perceived required youth, it’s fascinating to taste how any vintage of this wine, current or otherwise, evolves.
Perfect with kangaroo steak on the BBQ. If that's a bit tricky to hunt down or the weather is a bit dismal for a barby, go for a lovely rump or T- bone nice and rare.
