Yangarra Estate Ovitelli Blanc 2020


Welcome to the debut Ovitelli Blanc release. A magnificent wine, there is plenty going on as you'd expect from Yangarra Estate. The back label states, "Renowned for our Grenache and respecting the distant homelands of this variety, we planted its white varietal cousins." Lovers of texture and interest ought to dip their oar in.

d’Arenberg The Love Grass Shiraz 2019


To sum this Shiraz up in a couple of words I'd say generous and savoury. It's a wine that grows on you and loves the chance to soak up some air to show its best form.

Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz 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.
