A gem from Yarra Yering


A gem from Yarra Yering


Yarra Yering, with its distinctive labels, is one of my favourite Australian wineries. I drank this gem last night: probably well before its time, but it was lovely. [Read more about Yarra Yering here.]

Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No 2 2012 Yarra Valley, Australia
This is the Shiraz-based wine. Fresh, sweetly fruited and textural with a complex leathery, spicy, slightly meaty edge to the berry and cherry fruit. There’s just a hint of mint and medicine, but the dominant theme is supple, juicy sweet berry and black fruit. Developing very nicely, this is beginning to mellow out. It’s Australian, but it doesnt taste overripe or dominated by eucalyptus. Instead this is balanced, approachable and delicious, and will age beautifully over the next decade or two I reckon. Lovely weight here. 94/100
