Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1 Australia Red 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This has the typical Yarra Yering `Old World' crushed leaf Cabernet Sauvignoncharacter along with sleek cassis fruit and generous plumpness derived from theMerlot and Malbec. This will drink well for at least 20 years and will make foran interesting comparison to top 2005 Clarets in the future.<br/><br/>"..Purple-colored, it emits an alluring fragrance of smoky oak, toast, vanilla,pencil lead, olives, black currant, and blackberry liqueur....Impressivelybalanced, all components are well-integrated, and the finish lasts for 60seconds."<br/>(Jay Miller - Wine Advocate - Oct-2007)

Yarra Yering Pty Ltd:
Wine was grown in Victorias Yarra Valley from the mid 1800’s through to the 1920’s and was a principal export of the new colony. The industry was halted in the 1920’s not by phylloxera as many seem to think but by the economics of the day, changing tastes and the high price of wool.

Wine was grown in Victorias Yarra Valley from the mid 1800’s through to the 1920’s and was a principal export of the new colony. The industry was halted in the 1920’s not by phylloxera as many seem to think but by the economics of the day, changing tastes and the high price of wool. It would need a visionary to re establish winemaking in the Valley and in 1969 one came along. Dr Bailey Carrodus was ideally qualified to become a great vigneron. A degree in botany, another in winemaking and a doctorate earned at Oxford for research into plant physiology, combined with a passion for great wine and a fiercely independent mind equipped him well. In 1969 after a long search for the perfect site Dr Carrodus planted 12 hectares of vines at the foot of the Warramate Hills. The gentle slope with its northerly aspect and deep grey silty loam shot through with bands of gravel fulfilled all of his requirements. Good drainage, all day exposure to the warm sun, and enough elevation from the valley floor to avoid the spring frosts. He named his vineyard Yarra Yering and in 1973 produced the first commercial wine made in the Yarra Valley since 1921. Read less

Yarra Yering 2008 Opened 25/6/11 Gruyere - this was made in small lots and may not have been made for export. from younger vines not good enough for No 1 as yet. Red fruit, blackcurrant, cabernet sauvignon and hints of aniseed, spice lots of spice fill the nostrils Spice leads the way into an interesting blend, showing mouth filling but restrained juiciness? Strange statement I know. However there is a rush of vibrant fruit, Sweet and savoury at the same time with light acid and drying fruit tannins on the palate, As the wine opens up it becomes very European in mouth feel. There is good length with a lingering finish that is soft and cleansing. The last half of this bottle was finished 7 days latter. To my Disbelief it was out standing, soft ripe fruit, hints of tannin still supporting a very drinkable wine.
