Yarra Yering Dry Red No 1

"The 70 acre Yarra Yering vineyard lies on a north facing midriff of hillside on deep, broken up and well draining gravelly soils. Bailey Carrodus seeks to make a wine of “complexity, palate evenness and after taste”. Vinification in small open fermenters is followed by maturation in 'closely textured' new Seguin Moreau French oak for around 22 months. Carrodus likens seasoning of wine in oak like salt in porridge, "If it is pronounced it makes it taste terrible". Yarra Yering Dry Red No 1 – a Cabernet dominant Bordeaux blend – has bright blackcurrant fruit characters, savoury complexity and fine grained tannins. The wines age for between 10 and 15 years, easily developing extraordinary exotic, gamey nuances over time. "Andrew Caillard MW
