Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2 is Yarra Yering's Shiraz-based blend, with inspiration drawn from the reds of France's Rhone Valley. This 2020 Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2 is another beautifully perfumed and complex wine, with Shiraz (96%) joined with tiny amounts of Mataro (3%) and Viognier (1%).
The result is an incredibly vibrant, fragrant and wonderfully complex wine; the plum fruits come in all colours dialling up the flavour interest. There is cigar box and cardamom spice lending intrigue. Firm tannins ably support the fruit and texture drive the palate. A superb No 2 release from Yarra Yering that is well deserving of the high praise it has already received.
"96 Points. Shiraz with 3% mataro and 1% viognier, the latter added as skins to some of the fermenters. Matured 15 months in French barriques (30% new). A deep crimson red. Concentrated with redcurrants, satsuma plums and blackberries along with fennel seed, olive tapenande, dark chocolate powder and a little fresh vanilla from the oak. A complete wine on the palate with its dark sour-cherry fruit, a slight savoury edge and firm, very fine tannins providing the structure for this to age well into the decade and beyond. $125. Drink to 2032"- Philip Rich, Halliday Wine Companion.
"95 Points. Deep, bright red with purple glints, the bouquet is spicy and lifted, with clove and nutmeg nuances foremost, while the palate has those same flavours plus a note of walnut, and is taut and drying on the finish and follow-through. A more elegant iteration of shiraz, with fine tannins and already very approachable. Fresh acidity is evident on the finish. Good length and harmony. (3% mataro, 1% viognier) May 2022; 13.5% alc. Drink: 2022-2035."- Huon Hooke; The Real Review.
