Yarra Yering Sangiovese Yarra Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Forget Australian Chianti, think is excellent. An initially austere, cedarynose is followed by gorgeous sweet fruit in the mouth with a seductive richnessand velvety texture. This is perfectly balanced by a firm yet ripe tannicstructure. Delicious now, give this a couple of years to show its best.

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.

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 never seems to fail me and perhaps a little more off the normal track, this is a an excellent, spicy yet warm and smooth red. Cherry and raspberry along with a slight pepper, herby but cooked aspect add to a wine so smooth I can drink effortlessly.
