Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz 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.
The promise of the excellent crimson-purple colour is duly delivered; the bouquet has a fragrant blend of red fruits, spice and French oak, the medium-bodied but very long and pure palate with the full spectrum of flavours, but it is the finesse and elegance that make it special.

Shiraz from an eight acre vineyard. I remember enjoying the 1992 Underhill some years ago, as a fairly mature wine. Redcurrant, blackcurrant, pleasant herbal perfume, light dusting of pepper – though it’s the taste and smell of small berries that’s the main show. Medium bodied, light dusty tannin – really covers the mouth from front to back – all very clear and precise with a long finish. Tobacco and sweet red fruit. Simpler than both the No.1 and No.2 wines, though thoroughly charming. Time will be its friend too.
