YARRA YERING PINOT NOIR 2014
A medium bodied yet powerful style of Pinot noir featuring a rich velvety palate, supple and long. Both elegant and powerful at the same time this wine represents the individual site with crisp natural acidity, pert tannins and lingering flavours.
Yarra Yering is one of the oldest and most beautiful vineyards in the Yarra Valley consisting of 28 hectares of vines located at the foot of the Warramate Hills. Established in 1969 by Dr Bailey Carrodus the 1973 vintage saw the production of the first vintage of Dry Red Wines – No’s 1 & 2. This saw Yarra Yering quickly gain an international reputation for quality and individuality.
In 1973 Dr Bailey Carrodus released the first commercial vintage of wine from the Yarra Valley since 1923. The wines reflect this highly individual man, the site he chose so carefully, and the vagaries of the seasons in which they are produced. Today, Yarra Yering’s Winemaker Sarah Crowe is honouring the tradition that Dr Carrodus started in 1969. She is focusing on giving individual blocks and varieties the time and attention they deserve to continue making high quality wine. In August, 2016 Sarah was awarded one of the wine industry’s highest honours, being named by James Halliday as Winemaker of the Year for 2017 at the QANTAS epiQure Halliday Wine Companion Awards.
