Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No.2 2018 (Yarra Valley)

The Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No.2 2018 is a complex and layered wine. Sweet and savoury all at once. The fragrance is melting pot of violets, plums, savoury spices and a whiff of bramble. Moderate in weight; the plum fruits come in all colours dialling up the flavour interest. There is cigar box and cardamom spice lending intrigue. Firm yet fine tannins ably support the fruit and texture drive the palate. This one is hard to put in a box, there is so much to love.

"Shiraz 95%, mataro 3%, viognier 1%, marsanne 1%. Impeccable form. There's a sweetness to the fruit and a savouriness to the finish, redcurrant and twists of herbs, with floral overtones and oak as garnish. It's smooth-skinned but not syrupy; it's a wine in complete control. Not a question mark in sight."
95 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Companion 2021, 11 July 2021

The famed Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No.2 was one of just two wines originally created by Dr Bailey Carrodus after planting vines in 1969. The Dry Red No.2 is a Norther Rhone style blend, the 2018 vintage fruit was sourced from original 1969 plantings of Shiraz and Marsanne with additional Shiraz vines that were planted in the 1990’s, and the Mataro & Viognier drawn from vines planted from 1984 to 1995.

Fruit was hand-picked, transferred across a sorting table and destemmed directly to the Yarra Yering half-tonne open-fermenters. As much whole berry as possible is retained to encourage perfume. A little stalk return to some of the fermenters in order to contribute structure and aroma.A portion of fermenters had frozen Viognier skins added to the bottom, some with Marsanne skins. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barriques, 30% new before blending and bottling. Shiraz 95% Mataro 3% Viognier 1% Marsanne 1%

This fragrant style is approachable as a young wine but with some bottle maturation will evolve into a beautifully complex wine. This blend has a track record thus it will continue to evolve for a further 20+ years under suitable cellaring conditions should you want to cellar it for an extended period.
