Yarra Yering Shiraz Yarra Valley Underhill 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Underhill Shiraz differs markedly from the Dry Red No 2 Shiraz, in that the fruit comes from a single block, planted in 1974, and generally made up of heavier soils. This plot yields a <strong>fuller-bodied, more masculine style of wine</strong>, with distinctly chewier tannins and a savoury, dark fruit character. The wine needs a little more time for the different elements to combine and for the tannins to soften, but this is a very chunky, ripe style of Shiraz which needs substantial winter fare to partner. <br/><strong>(Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Wine Director)</strong>

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.

Beautiful texture is apparent in the 1998 Shiraz Underhill. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sweet nose of black fruits, minerals, smoke, and spice. This beautifully intense, pure Shiraz displays brilliant flavor definition, medium to ful... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from Victoria in Australia. 1998 Yarra Yering Shiraz Underhill 1500ml
