Yarra Yering are profound, intelligently made wines, the classic Claret style, five decades of the most memorable editions, new world classics offering the greatest finesse, profound richness of fruit and impeccable structure. After a few years of trials and tribulations to achieve the ultimate construct, Dr. Carrodus settled on a mostly Shiraz Cuvée with judicious inclusions of Mataro, Viognier and Marsanne. A wine of great clarity and depth, articulating clearly the excellence of terroir and artisanal approach to winemaking at the hamlet of Gruyere.
Vines are pruned to yield no more than two tons to the acre. Founder Dr. Carrodus always aimed for a consistency of quality through a program of obtaining optimal ripeness of fruit each year. The dry farmed vines are hand harvested into small plastic buckets. Vinification begins within two hours of picking, as fruit is passed through an antique Amos crusher and destemmer, into specially designed one ton stainless steel lined fermenters. Approximately a third of components are kept on skins for three weeks maceration before being transferred to barrel for ferments. Dry Red No.2 is matured in nothing less than the finest quality, exclusively French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Deep ruby colour. Attractive vanilla cedar nose, red and black fruits, dried herb and scorched earth notes. A deeply structured palate, heavily laden with enticing fruit flavours, blackcurrants, olive and mint against a background of warm French oak. The structure and tannin balance are magnificent, bramble berries and dark fruit flavours linger on the seemingly endless finish.

About Yarra Yering Winery
Yarra Yering is one of Victoria's and Australia's most treasured little boutique winerys, yielding little berries of enticingly flavoured grapes that are crafted into magical red wines
After a lengthy search for the penultimate terroir and microclimate, Dr. Bailey Carrodus chose a site in the Yarra Valley which seemed to meet all the requirements, grey silty clay loam with bands of gravel for good drainage, on a north-facing slope high enough out of the valley to avoid late spring frosts. The site has fulfilled all expectations producing a wide range of quality fruit, from Pinot Noir to Touriga Nacional for a fortified red wine. Most of the 12-hectare plot was planted in 1969 and the 1973 vintage was the first commercial wine produced in the valley since 1921. Yarra Yering»
