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.
This blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot has rightfully gone down in Yarra folklore over the past 51 years, a beaconand inspiration for what is arguably the region's benchmark style. 2018 is set to go down amongst the greats, a seamless and thrilling union of fragrance, energy, polish and poise, sealed with the ultimate line and length. Breathtaking. Rating: 98 Points; Tyson Stelzer
Very bright, youthful, deep purple/red colour, and a lovely bouquet of blackberry and cassis, oak making a subtle contribution, the palate intense and powerful, full-bodied but not big or anywhere near a blockbuster, the tannins abundant and supple, fine-grained and persistent for the entire palate. An utterly gorgeous wine, cabernet characteristics well in evidence, but already complex, profound and multi-layered. Wonderful flavour and precision. Prodigious length, seamless harmony and great potential - although it's a great drink now.

Beautiful. Memorable. Wonderful. The texture grabs you. The faintest grip, the sheath of feathery tannins at play. Scents of cassis, bay leaf, faint eucalyptus and mint, sandalwood and sweet earth. Pure flavours, come hither fruitiness, but compact, inward, extraordinarily long in character too. A cool expression, tense and taut, luxurious too, has flow, but all compact and restrained. It tastes delicious, generally, though it’s the feel, the stretch, the sense of pedigree and detail that gets you. Stellar release. And I reckon more better to come.

55% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot, 12% malbec, 5% petit verdot. Essence of blackcurrant with a boysenberried freshness, almost into forest berry territory, with polished cedar wood oak and drifts of fragrant herbs. Pure, complete, svelte; all these words apply. Has a long run ahead of it. Drink to: 2040; Price: $120.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2020; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points; Campbell Mattinson; James Halliday Wine Companion
