Yarra Yering Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Noir: "Dark red. Flamboyantly aromatic nose offers piercing notes of wild strawberry, raspberry, fresh rose, violet, magnolia and mocha; smells like a Dujac wine from the '80s, or something from Cristom. Pliant, juicy and fresh, with red berry flavors demonstrating excellent sweetness, focus and verve. This suave, silky midweight could easily be confused for a high-end Burgundy. Finishes on a spicy, peppery note, the sweet red berry flavors repeating." 92 points Josh Raynolds Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

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

A powerful, concentrated pinot that displays a spicy nose of cherries and currants, supported by charry, cedary oak. The palate builds in intensity with plummy, cherry notes dominating. The oak and tannins are well integrated, running the length of the wine. Will develop over the following 5 years.
