Description

Yarra Yering wines are some of the most iconic to be produced on our little island, so when there is a rare release wine that we don’t see every year, it’s wise to sit up and take notice.

Normally a core component in the Dry Red No. 2, when yields allow, they like to drop this small batch unicorn single-variety Merlot. Berries, and a smoky tobacco woodsy element, all entwined in that soft round Merlot full fruit character with some delightful spice.

Complex, structured and special, this wine only rolls around once in a blue moon, and in miniscule quantities. Don’t leave yourself with years of regret till the next blue moon, grab something rarer than hen's teeth before your best mate does.

A key component in our flagship blend; Dry Red Wine No. 1, it is difficult in most years to have a single varietal bottling. 2019 sent us good yields and great flavour and so we are able to bottle a small run.

96 Points - "Deep, bright purple/red colour, with a smoky oak and sulfide first aroma, the palate full-bodied and profound in sweet dark-berry fruit, mulberry and cranberry. Raspberry later. Fruit drives the wine. A hearty serve of firm tannins brings on the finish, but it's still superbly balanced. Full-bodied and well concentrated: a gorgeous wine and a quite remarkable merlot." Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

93 Points - "Merlot doesn’t often appear as a YY varietal bottling – the last was in 2012. While somewhat closed, this is starting to reveal itself as a wine of note. Raspberries and blackcurrants doused with cocoa and a vibrancy throughout. There's a plushness across the palate, with woodsy spices and a slight green cardamom taste that's unusual but appealing." Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
