Love this wine... So much going on and yet it’s in a hurry to get to the finish.
About The Wine
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 fruit for this vintage of the blend was harvested entirely from the 25-year-old plantings of Semillon and Chardonnay on the Underhill Vineyard.
It was fermented in barrel and went through full malolactic fermentation. It's a wine that will show its best in time and will reward the patient.
An exemplary wine full of complexity and interest and one of the benchmarks for Semillon blends in the country.
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.
