About

The Yarra Yering Dry White No. 1 is one of the country’s most elite examples of Semillon blend inspired by the whites of Bordeaux.

It is constructed specifically to be a cellaring style of wine; tight and racy in its youth and luscious at maturity.

The 2013 vintage of the blend was harvested entirely from the original 1969 plantings of Semillon and Chardonnay. It was fermented in barrel and went through full malolactic fermentation.

It received 95 points from James Halliday and with several years in bottle, is now starting to come into its own. An exemplary wine full of complexity and interest.

What It Tastes Like

“A 90/10% blend of semillon and chardonnay; crushed, with skin contact prior to pressing, fermented in used French barriques, 100% mlf. Bright straw-green; a complex bouquet with some smoky/funky characters notwithstanding the mlf, the palate built on a foundation of crisp acidity; the lemon, lemongrass fruit of semillon will grow and expand with honey and toast over the next 5+ years.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
