Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1 Yarra Valley Victoria Bottle 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>A blend heavily based on Cabernet Sauvignon but with contributions from Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The style is restrained, leaning very strongly towards Bordeaux, without the vibrant ripe fruit which characterised some of the early vintages of this wine. Fine tannins point to the wine's cool climate origin, and despite the development of the Yarra Yering range into multiple offerings this wine remains the standard bearer of the selection. <br/><strong>(Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Wine Director)</strong>

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

Nice and oaky, but doesn't stay long on palate...
