2019 Yarra Yering Dry Red No 1
Yarra Yering’s most iconic wine! All hand harvested and sent across a sorting table, only the very best berries go into this wine. The Cabernet fruit is individually berry sorted before being crushed to build structure through fermentation. Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot are whole berry ferments for fragrance and palate flesh.
All fermented in half-tonne fermenters and hand plunged twice daily, some of the Cabernet spending extended time on skins for complexity. Components kept separate in French oak barrels, only 40% of them new until being blended just before bottling after 15 months barrel maturation.
Needing some bottle maturation to unfurl. Under suitable cellaring conditions it will evolve for 20+ years if you wish to show restraint, otherwise choose your occasion and enjoy!
Tasting Note: Experience the essence of this blend through its vibrant fruit notes, complemented by hints of sage and a subtle herbal undertone. A touch of oak adds depth and complexity to the flavour profile, resulting in a perfectly balanced combination. The prominent fruit flavours, accompanied by a strong acidic finish and sturdy tannins, promise a promising future for this wine. Its brooding yet captivating nature makes it a delight to witness as it evolves over time.
Origin: Yarra Valley, Australia
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot
