2019 Yangarra Estate Vineyard Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc (74%), Roussanne (12%), Clairette (6%), Picpoul (5%) and Bourboulenc (3%).
An Australian first; a heat resilient blend of white varieties sourced in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and grown on newly planted cuttings here on our single-vineyard Estate in McLaren Vale.
Blanc is the result of years of research and quarantine of the best white varieties we can find amongst the ancient north-west Mediterranean vine types. The fact that these Châteauneuf varieties have been successfully blended for so many years encouraged us to pursue this direction. On the back of Grenache Noirs success in our region, it seemed logical to pursue Châteauneuf’s top whites on our southern coast.
