Batches are delicately basket pressed into seasoned French oak barriques for malolactic and twenty months maturation.

Dark scarlet red. Perfumed nose of cherries and bramble, dark currants and varietal leaf, a distinct herbaceousness which speaks of terroir. The classic Cabernet black and blue berry palate, black cherry and robust plum, cassis and leafy herbal notes, Malbec playing its part with inky robust fruit, vibrancy and ample tannins, exquisitely balanced.
Yarra Yering Dry Red No1
Yarra Valley
Available in cases of 6
Excellent Langton's Classification. The timeless Claret style of red wine, this is the bespoke blend on which Yarra Yering's reputation was built and continues to endure. Almost deceptively, they drink well in their youth, yet are known to evolve for decades. Half Cabernet, a fifth of Merlot, the balance in Malbec and Petit Verdot, all harvested off the original 1969 unirrigated estate plantings at Gruyere in Yarra Valley. Beautifully balanced and integrated, the fruit of an iconic vineyard, such delicacy within a sleeping powerhouse of precision.

Eighty acres are planted to noble varietals and port wine grapes. The dry grown vines are pruned to yield no more than two tons per acre. No.1 Dry red is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Grapes are hand picked into specially designed stackable plastic buckets. Crushing takes place within two hours of picking through the old Amos crusher/ destemmer, then poured into Dr. Carrodus' extraordinary fermenters, which are essentially stainless steel lined tea chests on wheels. Should cooling be necessary, ice blocks are used. A third of this wine is left on skins for three weeks before being transferred to barrel. Dry Red No.1 is matured for up to two years in completely new French oak.
 
Deep, bright ruby coloured wine. isplays a concentrated essence of red berry fruits and blackcurrant with an olive and mint background. Has a deep, structured palate that is interwoven with cedary, French oak characters. The ripe fruit and tannins run in unison along the entire palate.
Yarra Yering Dry Red No2
Yarra Valley
Available in cases of 6
Inspired by the complex and eclectic styles, famously originating from the Shiraz grape's spiritual home within the diverse appellations of Vallee Rhône. In true stylistic authenticity, Mourvedre, Viognier and Marsanne add a further element of intrigue. Complex and traditional winemaking methods are employed to craft this most extraordinary, some would say most eccentric of Yarra Valley reds. The internationally renowned Dry Red No.2 is perpetually fine tuned as the team adjust the proportions of fruit to the performance of vintage.

Yarra Yering's Dry Reds are national flagships, based around complex varietal blends.

Dark garnet colour. Sweet ripe and plummy nose, vanilla spice and tobacco oak. Chewy and delicious palate, perfectly harmonized Shiraz tannins and fruit, the magnificence of an aged Côtes du Rhône, a complex spectrum of flavours, soaring prominently against a backwash of quenching acids and sunny palate warmth. A concentrated, long lived and elegant wine, always ranked amongst the first growth of Australian Shiraz.

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.
 
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.
Yarra Yering Dry White No1
Yarra Valley

Three quarters Semillon, the balance in Sauvignon Blanc, from fruit selectively hand picked and sorted off dry grown estate vines at Gruyere. Grapes are gently crushed to encourage skin contact and infuse flavour, batches are manually basket pressed with minimal settling time before filling to seasoned French oak barriques for primary ferments and a rich course of malolactic, followed by eleven months maturation. A generously proportioned Semillon Sauvignon of ample palate weight and profound generosity of oak developed fruit.

Straw yellow hues. A fruit salad of aromas, crisp green apple and tangy pineapple. The palate dominated by a citrus backbone and fleshed out with the texture of oak barrel ferments and malolactic. A textural wine of significant weight and length driven by an acid tang that would stand up to rich gourmandise.
Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz
Yarra Valley
Available in cases of 6
Sourced exclusively off the unirrigated eight acre block, established 1973 at the western extremity of Yarra Yering. Cool climate new world Shiraz starts here. A high inclusion of stalks and whole bunches are added back to the traditional half tonne open tea chest fermenters to lend juiciness plus extra cut and persistent tannins to the sweeping finish. Basket pressed and aged eighteen months in a high proportion of new French oak. A slight westerly aspect and propitious clay soils yield a wine that's a perfect foil for the feminine Dry Red No.2

Deep garnet red. Heady plum fruits and pretty violet aromatics interlaced with liquorice spice and hint of cracked pepper. Blood plums and cigar oak with a violet floral lift from the inclusion of stalk during fermentation. The heavier clay based soils make a wine of dark fruits and spice, chewy tannins creating the framework in support of savouryness and fruit.
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

The reputation of the valley in the 19th and early 20th centuries rested on Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, and these were the main varieties planted, but it was essential to give Pinot Noir a go, and so a smallish area of that was in the first planting. These three grapes dominated the first three wines. Classically, Cabernet Sauvignon has always had companions, Cabernet Franc was excluded because the only Australian examples had an earthiness which was not wanted, so Malbec and Merlot were in the early plantings and later some Petit Verdot.

Shiraz on its own will develop the desired complexity with about ten years in bottle, but the Rhone Valley shows what some companions will do for it. The Yarra Yering winemakers tried some other Rhone reds, but had difficulty ripening them. Eventually they got their hands on Viognier, and there has been a small amount added to the No.2 Dry Red since 1984. Small amounts of whites were also planted, mainly for the winemakers own enjoyment, but the vineyard is predominantly red.

In 1988 four hectares of fifteen-year old Shiraz on adjacent land to the East became available and they are now known as Underhill. This quirky name is a rough translation of the name Prigorje which the previous owner had given it, in memory of the Croatian village from which he came.

The idea behind buying the Shiraz had been to increase the amount of No.2 Dry Red, but about the same time the EU recognized Yarra Yering as a viticultural sub-region in its own right, and this accolade meant that material from outside the original site could not blended.

The division of Australian vineyards into separate regions has now been reviewed and these restrictions luckily no longer apply. Later additions of 8 and 12 hectares have been incorporated into Yarra Yering.

A north-west facing slope has been terraced and planted with Portuguese grape varietals, mainly Touriga Nacional and Tinta Cao with some Roriz, Tinta Amarello, Souzao and Alvarelhao. The last addition of parcels is mostly planted to Cabernet and Shiraz, to meet the overwhelming demand for the two main blends. Other experimental plantings at Yarra Yering are Sangiovese and Barbera.
