Yarra Yering Shiraz Dry Red #2 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2004 Dry Red Wine No. 2 (95% Shiraz and 5% Marsanne and Viognier), whilealso amazing, is more closed, tannic, and harder to fully penetrate than theShiraz. With aeration, the bouquet reveals notions of exotic Asian spicesintermixed with flowers, blackberries, and cassis. In the mouth, the winestruts its stuff with a full-bodied, layered, broad, flavorful, concentratedstyle and moderately high tannin in the finish. This fabulous bambino needs tobe cellared for 2-4 years and drunk over the following two decades."<br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Dec-2006)

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
