"Great vintage, great wine." 97 points, James Halliday. The name Ironheart speaks to the reddish ironstone gravel soil and represents the most eloquent expression of Shiraz from Yangarra's unique estate. This wine aspires to be a powerhouse, yet showcasing perfume and an elegant side to its dense sanguine character and tannin-built structure. Lifted perfumes which will only continue to become more expressive over time. On the palate the power and concentration of the fruit unfolds, with big soft tannins so typical from this site, and the iron-like sanguine finish. Made by Peter Fraser - 2016 Winemaker of the Year (James Halliday Wine Companion), this wine is certified Organic & Biodynamic.

95 / 100

Campbell Mattinson

Hand picked (organically-grown) grapes. 25% whole bunches. Cold soaked, open fermented, wild yeast, 48% new French oak for 15 months. Brilliant wine. Its quality impresses from the outset. Full-bodied but polite about it. Blackberry, plum, a jellied sweetness, a full serve of cedarwood oak, florals, peppercorns. Pretty in part, gutsy in other, svelte. Tannin rolls and rumbles from the mid-palate onwards but it comes flooded with flavour. Generous and joyous.

Huon Hooke

Deep, youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is shy but fresh, bright and clean, with dark plum fruit and quite strongly stated oak. It's very full-bodied, rich and deep, with youthful and slightly undeveloped, tightly-packed flavours, which promise to bring forth more in the future if it's cellared. There's a super-abundancy of tannin as well, balancing the formidable concentration. A big, solid, rugged shiraz. One for the cellar. Drink 2021 – 2043

James Halliday

Hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented with 25% whole bunches, matured for 15 months in French oak (40% new). A distilled essence of shiraz from two blocks within a single estate vineyard. It's in no way overdone, but it does have some of the authoritarian stance of top flight cabernet. The black fruits speak in one voice of the ironstone soil in which the vines are planted. Great vintage, great wine.
