2015 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$95.00 Bottle
  • Cellar 8 - 10 years (2026-2028)
  • ABV 14%
  • Closure: Stelvin

From vines planted in 1969 this a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Excellent depth of colour featuring an impenetrable black red core and a youthful dark red hue. Perfumed aromatics of blackcurrants, dark cherries and ripe mulberries gently laced with violets flow out of the glass with an undercard of subtlety toasted vanillin cedar and spicy dried herbs. Medium bodied, supple and elegant in the mouth the lengthy palate features a mixture of red and black currants, dark cherries and mulberries that have an understated richness. Elements of spicy vanillin cedar and subtle fresh herb infusions chime in on the back palate. Well balanced acidity combines with a  very refined tannin structure to provide the framework. Long aftertaste of blackcurrant, dark cherries, mulberries, subtle cedary tobacco characters and light spicy dried herb infusions.
Cellar 8-10 years plus
Alc. 14%

Other Reviews….
This is a superlative, tightly furled Bordeaux blend of pedigree, age-worthiness and a sapid quiver of black currant to herbal notes: crushed, dried and strewn about the palate, all tightly guarded by gravelly tannins and juicy natural acidity. The oak handling, too, smacks of expertise: a fine-grained and well trained hedge, embellishing the savoury air of the style rather than overwhelming it. A blend of 67% cabernet sauvignon, 16% merlot, 13% malbec and a mere seasoning of petit verdot synergise to make an imperious, beautiful wine with a long, long life ahead. Drink by 2040.

James Halliday – Australian Wine Companion

It’s a classic blend of cabernet sauvignon (67%), merlot (16%), malbec (13%) and petit verdot (4%). What a staple this wine has been in many Australian fine wine cellars. The vintage should conspire for a super wine over years. Released May 2017.
It’s in great shape but I feel it’s destined for better. It’s heady in blue fruits, plum, licorice, green herbs, undergrowth and eucalyptus. It’s tight, sinewy and yet curiously succulent in youth. An epee thrust of dark fruit, wood spice, cool underlying acidity, pulverised granite tannins, stretched out, lazy and fine in equal measures. Proportions are neat and even, its fabulous to watch and taste as it unfurls over a couple of days; pure class, it’s true to its name of the No. 1. Drink 2017-2035+
