From a selection of Merlot and Sangiovese grapes, like Luce, Lucente is the result of a careful and attentive interpretation of the terroir, but with an immediate slant.

Yangarra Roux Beaute Roussanne 2019
The 2019 growing season was very dry, which resulted in incredibly low yields. We had a relatively warm lead up to the ripening period, which produced a very condensed and fast harvest. With Roussanne being a late ripening variety, it faired very well in a season like this, giving rise to concentration, freshness of flavor and marked natural acidity.
Hand-picked from Block 6 (1.0 ha) on March 16th, our oldest Roussanne planting which is now 15 years old. 50% is destemmed, crushed, and filled to 675L ceramic eggs, where it is fermented and remains on the skins for 193 days. The other 50% is pressed into ceramic eggs and fermented off of the skins. The final blend was 40% extended skin batch and 60% without skin contact. The final blend was 40% extended skin batch and 60% without skin contact. Bottled November 2019.
“This is a rich white, showing impressive structure and plenty of ripe lemon, pear, peach and mangosteen with some savory pastry-like notes, too. The palate has a tangy edge and smooth-toned phenolics carrying plenty of flavor. From organically grown grapes. Drink over the next six years.” – Nick Stock, James SucklingSKU: YRA11-1900750-WH
Yangarra Estate Ironheart Shiraz 2018
Ironheart is the flagship Shiraz from our single vineyard estate at the northern edge of McLaren Vale.
The wine was kept on lees in 35% new French oak, 65% older French oak for 15 months. Each barrel was carefully selected to ensure it showcases the characters of the ironstone that it grows in.
“Squid-ink-purple colour, scents of plush boysenberry, balsamic flowers and coffee. A rush of flavour, sweet red and black cherries, bacon fat, dried herbs and vanilla bean cradled by a full-body with svelte tannins. Showcasing flavour concentration, depth, opulence and long persistence to finish.” Amanda Yallop, The Real Review.SKU: YRA08-1800750-RD
In perfect harmony between the elegance of Sangiovese and the strength of Merlot, this is our icon-wine, capable of representing our original interpretation of the terroir, vintage after vintage.
Ruby-red in colour, deep and intense, Luce has equally intense and spicy notes which, through ageing, blend with aromas that recall the Mediterranean scrub. Full bodied, it has velvety tannins and a long finish.SKU: LUC01-1900750-RD
Yangarra Estate High Sands Grenache 2018
High Sands is our Holy Grail. It captures the essence of our prized old vines.
The wine was kept on lees in 100% older French oak for 11 months. Each barrel was carefully selected to ensure it showcases the pedigree of the deep sand, with lifted fragrance, intense fruit expression and fine, gritty long tannin structure. Not fined.
“Intense ruby colour, bright and clear throughout the glass. Wine gums, dry earth and wakame on the nose. The palate is medium in weight but full in power. Fruit sits with depth, but the tannin profile is something special in its intensity and grip. Great length, it lingers very long. Time in the cellar is highly recommended as this will age very well. If you’re a classical Châteauneuf-du-Pape fan, then this is a wine to note.” – Stuart Knox, The Real ReviewSKU: YRA09-1800750-RD
