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

Packaged in an unconventional light green Bordeaux-styled bottle the 1998 Pinot Noir is muted aromatically but in the mouth textbook flavors of currants cherries and cola are present. The texture is supple the wine builds incrementally as do all of these dry reds and follows through with a long concentrated noble elegant finish. It should drink well for 5-7 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Deep red. Aromas of currant, loam, dark chocolate and smoky oak. Intensely flavored but much dryer than the shiraz, with firm acids giving it strong backbone. Finishes with strong smoky oak notes and slightly drying tannins. Still quite young despite... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
