Yangarra Estate Vineyard Ironheart Shiraz, McLaren Vale

The Ironheart is so named for the reddish ironstone gravel soil in the middle of the Blewitt Springs vineyard. Unlike the western side of the vineyard, ironstone is all but exposed save for some small patches of sandy clay or loam.

‘As a young wine, the typical dark fruit aromas are elusive, but on the palate, the power and concentration of the fruit unfold, with big soft tannins so typical from this site, and the iron-like sanguine finish. A wine made to sustain the years ahead.’
Peter Fraser, Yangarra winemaker.

There are 100 hectares of vineyards at Yangarra divided into 35 individual blocks. The fruit for the Ironheart is sourced from Block 18, a mere 1.8 hectares of what the winery describes as their ‘most elite Shiraz’ vines and produces wines of power, elegance and longevity. So very clearly inspired by the wines of the Rhône.

Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.
