Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz 2016
Halliday Wine Companion: "Rich complex and mildly tannic; its balance assuring those tannins will settle down and thereafter serve to assure development of the wine." Feb 2019
Wine Enthusiast: "From a high elevation site with sandy, ironstone soils—and from a terrific vintage—this Shiraz is unlike many of its South Aussie counterparts. There are sanguine and graphite notes amid the broody black cherry, plum and vanilla aromas, plus a raw power that's exhilarating. Alongside the muscle there's also exceptional poise, balance and complexity. Chalky, precise tannins weave together the silky fruit. Drink 2022–2040." Aug 2020
Winery: "The name Ironheart speaks to the reddish ironstone gravel soil and represents the most eloquent expression of Shiraz from our unique estate. This wine aspires to be a powerhouse, yet showcasing perfume and an elegant side to its dense sanguine character and tannin-built structure."
