Yarra Yering Dry Red No2 2012
Yarra Yering is one of the oldest and most beautiful vineyards in the Yarra Valley consisting of 28 hectares of vines located at the foot of the Warramate Hills. Established in 1969 by Dr Bailey Carrodus the 1973 vintage saw the production of the first vintage of Dry Red Wines – No’s 1 & 2. This saw Yarra Yering quickly gain an international reputation for quality and individuality.
Shiraz, with a small percentage of mataro, was co-fermented with viognier and marsanne. While the colour is not particularly deep, the fragrance of the wine is exceptional, the intensity of the juicy spray of red fruits on the vibrant palate even more so. This is an iron fist in a velvet glove, the flavours lingering long after the wine has been swallowed. The inheritance of the late Bailey Carrodus is being carefully guarded.

Shiraz with Mataro and Marsanne and Viognier skins. Meat, capsicum, pepper and black fruit, then stone fruit and flowers. Medium bodied with dark chocolate and stewed flavours, but also the brightness of clean perfectly integrated acidity and layers of detail. Slick glossy texture with buried tannin – deceptive and quite beautiful – and an almost breath freshening cool finish of super length. Quirky. Great to drink. One of a kind.
