About

The 2012 Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1 is comprised of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with small parcels of Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The individual parcels are fermented in small open-top fermenters, the final blend crafted to showcase each individual season on this iconic Yarra Valley estate. This is a glorious wine, the famous Yarra Valley Cabernet wine style personified in the contents of the bottle.

James Halliday awarded it 97 points and noted, "this is a top-flight No. 1..." and The Wine Front's Gary Walsh awarded it 96+ points praising it, "Such impressive structure and quality here. Superb. Will cellar a treat."

This rare museum release is only available in small quantities. It's a wine destined for great things. The 2012 is only at the beginning of its long and distinguished life. It should be an essential part of any serious Australian cellar.

What it Tastes Like

"Blackcurrant, fresh blackberry, violet notes, tobacco and cedar, and a slightly twiggy but attractive varietal top note. Medium bodied, firm acidity and a sluice of powdery – you might call them gravelly – tannin that runs long and persists on the finish. Depth of fruit and black tea and tobacco savouries, the oak beautifully integrated and all just so. Such impressive structure and quality here. Superb. Will cellar a treat. Touch and go for a massive 97 points." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
