Yangarra Estate joins Fells
Monday 4th September sees premium Australian wine producer, Yangarra Estate, join the Fells portfolio.
The Yangarra philosophy is to produce wines from their single-vineyard estate, that reflect an authentic sense of place. The property is 170 total hectares, of which nearly 90 hectares are planted to vine. The remaining 80 hectares are preserved for native vegetation and wildlife and are intended to enhance the symbiotic relationship between the vines and their natural environment.
Yangarra’s combination of rare geologies, moderate altitude, abundant sunshine and cool evening breezes make it perfect for growing varieties that thrive in moderate maritime Mediterranean environments.
They are devoted to producing wines from the best grape varieties of the southern Rhone, where their old bush vine Grenache is the cornerstone variety. Yangarra Estate is planted with a number of diverse varieties, including traditional grapes like Shiraz and Roussanne to more obscure varieties such as Bourboulenc, Picpoul Noir, Clairette Blanc and Counoise. With a tendency towards experimentation, Yangarra was the first in Australia to commercially plant Grenache Blanc.
Through their biodynamic regenerative farming practices, and their sensitive winemaking philosophies, their respect of this special piece of country is evident in the wines they make from its grapes – every Yangarra Estate wine is a confident reflection of this land.
