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.
A classic blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot, 8% malbec and 4% petit verdot. Hand-picked and sorted, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, on skins for up to a month, matured for 12 months in French oak (35% new). This is the serious side of '17. The aromas and flavours are still fresh and vibrant, but the palate, in particular, brooks no argument: this is a wine for protracted cellaring to allow the whipcord-tight structure to relax its grip.

This is complex and very rich with sliced berries, spices and flowers throughout. Full-bodied. Very soft and fine tannins on the palate. Long and flavorful finish. Extremely balanced and refined. A blend of 70 %cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot, 8 % malbec and 4% petit verdot. Rating: 97 Points; James Suckling
Deep, dark red/purple colour and some smoky oak makes its presence felt on the fruit-driven bouquet. The wine is deliciously accessible in the mouth with elegant fruit and soft, fine-grained tannins. Violet, cassis, mulberry, blackberry aromas come up increasingly with aeration. The wine is not big, but medium to full-bodied and suavely proportioned, seemingly with moderate alcohol strength, the finish gliding on effortlessly. Drink: 2019 to 2039; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
