YANGARRA 'IRONHEART' SHIRAZ
"Sourced exclusively from Block 15 which lies amongst a gravelly ironstone outcrop (where the North Maslin Sand geology comes to the surface). Hand-picked, 25% whole bunches and the remainder has been destemmed, mechanical berry sorted and crushed. Cold Soak. Open Fermenters. Plunged. Wild yeast ferment. No pressings are used in this wine. Kept on lees in 35% new French oak, 65% older French oak for 15 months. We select individual barrels which showcase the characters of the ironstone that it grows in. Bottled August 2017."
"Another superb Ironheart Shiraz. It's a wine that hits the target without fail. I was lucky enough to taste this in barrel with winemaker Peter Fraser during vintage back in 2017. It didn't miss the mark then and it's perched gorgeously now...One of those "come at me" wines where intrigue and satisfaction come in spades. A treat to behold in two hands. Certified biodynamic and organic. Drink to a decade+. Rating: 96 Points" - QWINE
