I’m a bit behind with this Yangarra Blanc 2020, but it’s still looking good. McLaren Vale white blend, in the mode of a Chateauneuf du Pape blanc. 62% Grenache Blanc this vintage, fermented in ceramic eggs and older barrel for 4 months. No sulphur until bottling. What a regime for a $27 wine!
A nice, fresh and lively drink too. Soft and creamy at the edges but it’s a taut white underneath. I like this sort of frisky, yet not unripe, drink. It’s just a little bit phenolic and pithy to finish, but plenty of refreshment here.
Yangarra Blanc 2020. Best drinking: nowish. Might even be better next year. 17.5/20, 91/100. 13%, $27. Yangarra website. Would I buy it? I’d share a bottle.
