Yarra Yering Shiraz Yarra Valley Underhill 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Shiraz: "Deep red. Intensely ripe aromas of blackberry, cola, licorice root and vanilla. A thick, almost oily shiraz, with flavors of black cherry and blackberry eau de vie, vanilla cola and cured meat. As viscous as this is, it also boasts impressive verve and finishes fat, velvety and sweet. You need to squeegee this clinging wine off your palate. This outsized shiraz has the density to age but is plenty enjoyable right now." 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

This is quite simply the nicest Shiraz I have ever had. Deep purple, hints of dark cherry, blueberry and vanilla, silky smooth velvet finish and just the right amount of sweetness to go. An absolute pleasure drinking, just a shame I only have the 1 bottle.
