Yarra Yering is one of the finest estates of Australia. Founded in 1969, it still leads the field in Victoria and this is its original red. With 96 points, you know it's going to be something extraordinary. Bordeaux style with great ageing potential.
Yarra Yering is a legend of Victoria's Yarra Valley. It was founded by Dr Bailey Carrodus in 1969, in a region that had been making wines since the 1850s. A New Zealander, he first studied horticulture in Wellington, then winemaking at Roseworthy, finishing his studies with a doctorate at Oxford University. There he was exposed to Europe's fine wines, from which grew a passion. In scholarly fashion, he did a study tour of Europe's top estates, then departed to Melbourne to teach. His aim was to find the perfect site for a vineyard, which he did in Yarra Valley, planting vines from 1969. Bordeaux-style Dry Red No.1 was his first release. Sourced from the original vineyard and aged 15 months in 40% new oak, it will mature with great grace.
"I collect this wine each vintage. I believe it's one of the great Cabernet blends in Australia"
