About The Wine
The Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1 is comprised of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with small parcels of Malbec and Petit Verdot from one of the great sites of the Yarra Valley.
The individual parcels are fermented in small open-top tea-chest fermenters, the final blend crafted to showcase each individual season on this iconic Yarra Valley estate.
This is a glorious wine, a benchmark of the famous Yarra Valley Cabernet wine style.
It's a wine destined for great things. The 2016 is an excellent vintage for more robust red wines. Winemaker Sarah Crowe knocked this out of the park. It should be an essential part of any serious Australian cellar.
About Yarra Yering
Yarra Yering is one of the most iconic wineries of the modern Yarra Valley.
Founded in 1969 by the visionary vigneron Dr. Bailey Carrodous, Yarra Yering has become a benchmark in quality and one of the most collected wineries in the country.
From this small patch of earth in the North of the Gruyere sub-region, Dr. Carrodous produced these legendary wines for more than three decades. In the process becoming recognised as one of the most influential winemakers in the Yarra's history.
Today, the wines are crafted by the talented Sarah Crowe. She brings the wines to bottle with the same passion and attention to detail that made the great Yarra Yering wines of old so revered.
