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.
An 80% Cabernet, 20% Malbec blend, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, hand-plunged twice daily, the cabernet with extended post-ferment maceration, matured in 2yo Bordeaux barrels for 18 months. As with all the red wines in the Yarra Yering range, has excellent colour, deep in the centre, vivid on the rim. In other respects it strikes out on its own, highly aromatic and tightly strung, with savoury, spicy notes. The tannins are supple and pliable, so it greets the taster with an elegant bow, the finish a flourish of juicy essence.

Deep red colour with a touch of purple, and stylish oak embellishment is apparent on the nose. Intense violets, blueberry and red fruits, which translate through to the palate. The wine is beautifully balanced, intense and vital, with tremendous energy and extension of finish. A superb wine with a big future. This one shows its oak more than the Dry Red No 1.
