2017 Yangarra Estate "Kings Wood" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1463330 99 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Hand-picked from the certified biodynamic estate Block 12 on a fruit day, wild yeast-open fermented with 25% whole bunches, matured in a 2500l French foudre. It's impossible to find anything done or not done that would improve this superb wine. It's (only) medium-bodied, but fills the senses with its tantalising bouquet, always with something more to say, yet it pales into insignificance once you taste the wine. It takes intensity and length to a new horizon, a sip as complex as that of a Rare Rutherglen muscat. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

96 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark A rare mix of power and restraint. Perfectly ripe, bright, concentrated fruit in the red cherry, raspberry and red plum sphere. The palate is captivating with its plush, supple, velvety nature. All of the elements are perfectly integrated. Certified organic and biodynamic. Highly recommended (Toni Paterson, The Real Review) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is an impressive take on the powerful shiraz that Yangarra is so respected for. The poise and polish emanate from quality grapes and some Rolls-Royce, large-format oak maturation. Sultry, spicy complexity warms the long finish in classy style. Certified organic. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From a single block biodynamically grown on a cool site in a cool vintage, this Shiraz, which sees 25% whole bunch, is aged in large French foudre. The result is an extraordinarily precise and complex wine, it’s only downfall being an unfortunately heavy bottle. Notes of raspberry, plum, iodine, damp earth, and chocolate and spice (neither from oak) are cinched with sinewy tannins and lifted by crystalline acidity. Manages an exacting and difficult tightrope walk of power and generosity with restraint and elegance. Drink now, or cellar until 2030--at least. (CP) Inner quote mark (6/2020)
