Shiraz CabernetSauv Barbera Mourvèdre Merlot Malbec PetitVe / Yarra Valley / Victoria
Vintage 2008 holds significant historical value, the last time that Dr Carrodus directed winemaking at Yarra Yering. The year produced rich and generous wines, they show great ageing potential and will be a fitting legacy to the founder of the estate. Gruyere is crafted to be varietally incidental, the actual cepage of fruit is of less importance than the overall structure, balance and presence of the wine. Although it bears the name of its particular sub region of the Yarra Valley, all components are sourced from the distinguished Yarra Yering vineyard.

Shiraz Viognier Marsanne / Yarra Valley / Victoria
Yarra Yering's Dry Reds are national flagships, based around complex varietal blends. Assigning the mercurial cépage of grapes a unique bin number, has liberated the winemaker to modify the mix as styles evolve. No.2 Dry Red is a perfumed, mostly Shiraz wine, rich and generous, co-fermented with inclusions of Mourvedre, Viognier and Marsanne for vibrancy, suppleness and an extra dimension to the range of expression. Feminine and seductive, beguiling yet elegant, with long, lingering impressions of violets and eucalypt, cherries and spiced plum.

CabernetSauv Merlot Malbec CabernetFranc PetitVerdot / Yarra Valley / Victoria
Excellent Langtons Classification. The timeless Claret style of red wine, this is the bespoke blend on which Yarra Yering's reputation was built and continues to endure. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with portions of Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. After a few years of trials and tribulations to achieve the ultimate construct, Dr. Carrodus decided to made the macerated component of No.1 blend dominant and upfront. A wine of great clarity and depth, medium bodied and low in alcohol, suggesting delicacy within a sleeping powerhouse of precision.

CabernetSauv Malbec Merlot PetitVerdot / Yarra Valley / Victoria
Excellent Langton's Classification. Yarra Yering are profound, intelligently made wines, the classic claret style, exhibiting great finesse, richness of fruit and impeccable structure. Almost deceptively, they drink well in their youth, yet are known to evolve for decades.
 
Yarra Yering is one of Victoria's and Australia's most treasured little boutique winerys, yielding little berries of enticingly flavoured grapes that are crafted into magical red wines

After a lengthy search for the penultimate terroir and microclimate, Dr. Bailey Carrodus chose a site in the Yarra Valley which seemed to meet all the requirements, grey silty clay loam with bands of gravel for good drainage, on a north-facing slope high enough out of the valley to avoid late spring frosts. The site has fulfilled all expectations producing a wide range of quality fruit, from Pinot Noir to Touriga Nacional for a fortified red wine. Most of the 12-hectare plot was planted in 1969 and the 1973 vintage was the first commercial wine produced in the valley since 1921.

 Yarra Yering

The reputation of the valley in the 19th and early 20th centuries rested on Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, and these were the main varieties planted, but it was essential to give Pinot Noir a go, and so a smallish area of that was in the first planting. These three grapes dominated the first three wines. Classically, Cabernet Sauvignon has always had companions, Cabernet Franc was excluded because the only Australian examples had an earthiness which was not wanted, so Malbec and Merlot were in the early plantings and later some Petit Verdot.

Shiraz on its own will develop the desired complexity with about ten years in bottle, but the Rhone Valley shows what some companions will do for it. The Yarra Yering winemakers tried some other Rhone reds, but had difficulty ripening them. Eventually they got their hands on Viognier, and there has been a small amount added to the No.2 Dry Red since 1984. Small amounts of whites were also planted, mainly for the winemakers own enjoyment, but the vineyard is predominantly red.

In 1988 four hectares of fifteen-year old Shiraz on adjacent land to the East became available and they are now known as Underhill. This quirky name is a rough translation of the name Prigorje which the previous owner had given it, in memory of the Croatian village from which he came.

The idea behind buying the Shiraz had been to increase the amount of No.2 Dry Red, but about the same time the EU recognized Yarra Yering as a viticultural sub-region in its own right, and this accolade meant that material from outside the original site could not blended.

The division of Australian vineyards into separate regions has now been reviewed and these restrictions luckily no longer apply. Later additions of 8 and 12 hectares have been incorporated into Yarra Yering.

A north-west facing slope has been terraced and planted with Portuguese grape varietals, mainly Touriga Nacional and Tinta Cao with some Roriz, Tinta Amarello, Souzao and Alvarelhao. The last addition of parcels is mostly planted to Cabernet and Shiraz, to meet the overwhelming demand for the two main blends. Other experimental plantings at Yarra Yering are Sangiovese and Barbera.
