About The Pack

Perhaps the crowning glory in an incredible year last year for Yarra Yering was taking home both the Halliday Wine Companion Winery of the Year and the Wine of the Year at the 2022 Wine Companion Awards.

Today we bring you those award-winning wines in very limited quantities. This pack features the Wine of the Year 2019 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1 Cabernet Blend for you to tuck into the darkest corner of your wine collection.

We have a limited supply of Yarra Yering available for this year, with the highly-rated 2019 wines being much sought-after before release. Yarra Yering is always a cellar-essential, but in a legendary year like this where they've won just about everything there is to win in Australian wine, these wines will be hunted for decades to come.

2019 Yarra Yering Dry Red No 1

98 points

"67/15/12/6% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/malbec/petit verdot. The first plantings at YY into block No 1 were these cabernet and malbec vines, hence the name. Some merlot was interplanted with the cabernet and subsequent plantings in 1990 from a newly acquired neighbouring site. Petit verdot is only grown on the hillside of the new territories. All hand harvested and sorted, only the very best berries go into this wine. Cabernet berries sorted individually before crushed. Merlot, malbec and petit verdot are whole-berry ferments. All fermented in half-tonne fermenters, hand plunged twice daily. Some of the cabernet spends more time on skins. Components are kept separate in French oak 40% new, 15 months all up then blended just before bottling. This is mesmerising. Do take time to bask in its fragrance – all floral and spicy with some aniseed and fresh herbs. Enjoy the poised fruit flavours of blackberries, mulberries and a hint of blueberries coated in spicy oak and tethered to the body of the wine. Pulsing acidity and beautiful tannin structure shape this and offer a promise of more to come in time. Wow – what a wine." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2019 Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2

98 points

"Hand picked, sorted and then destemmed directly to the Yarra Yering half-tone open-fermenters. As much whole-berry ferment as possible to encourage perfume. A portion of fermenters had frozen viognier skins added to the bottom. Aged 15 months in French oak barriques 30% new before blending. It's easy to be bowled over by this wine's beauty, from its bright colour to its heady fragrance of violets, Middle Eastern spices, fresh currants and blue fruits. Then magic happens. It is superfine, graced with perfectly formed silky tannins. The oak is seamlessly integrated, then flavours builds across the barely medium-bodied palate. While there's a lightness of touch, it's layered and complex. A complete wine full of style, elegance and substance." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2019 Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz

96 points

"Fruit from a single block of shiraz planted in 1973, 80/20% whole berries/bunches fermented in a 3500L new oak foudre. Half was then matured for a year in the same foudre, the remainder into used French oak puncheons. There's so much restraint and purity of fruit across the YY range this vintage, Underhill is no different. Perfumed, savoury, delicate yet complex, pure and long. Lacy tannins and fine acidity work across a lithe palate." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2019 Yarra Yering Merlot

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)

2019 Yarra Yering Agincourt Cabernet Malbec

96 points

"Could this be any more aromatic, with its perfect mix of florals, fruit and spice? The savouriness of (30%) malbec comes through as a mere accompaniment to the heady cabernet. Oak remains in the background, tannins are perfectly judged and acidity is bright. It promises to delight now and for some years hence" - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2019 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 3

95 points

"This blend of Portuguese varieties has come together seamlessly and offers immediate drinking appeal. Heady with violets and lavender, blackcurrants and Szechuan pepper, blackstrap licorice and Mediterranean herbs, all adding to its youthful beauty. Fine tannins, raspberry-like acidity and complexity raise it way above ordinary." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)
