About

There was something magical in the air during vintage 2014 for winemaker Sarah Crowe and Yarra Yering. Blocks slotting into place just so. The warm weather suited the dry grown vineyard down to the ground. Each wine produced a work of art. The Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 2 clearly some of her best work to date. This is Shiraz with small portions of Mataro, Marsanne and Viognier added for inflection. This is one of the wines to earn Sarah the coveted Halliday Winemaker of the Year accolade for 2017, this attracting a near perfect 98 points from Mr. Halliday. The hype around these wines is to be believed, they are simply glorious. The No. 2 is one of the best.

What it Tastes Like

"Largely shiraz, with a small amount of mataro added and co-fermented with viognier and marsanne. Brought back an instant recollection of the Bayeux Tapestry. It commences with a Catherine wheel of aromas, flavours and textures which are astounding, and - you think - leave nothing more to be said. But there's more, much more. For one thing, it is a sacrilege to spit out any of the wine when tasting it, for the autopilot is still working furiously trying to capture the interplay between the infinitely complex fruit flavours, the charcuterie, the spices, the earth, the tannins, the oak, and the licorice." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
