James Halliday – "A classic blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot, 8% malbec and 4% petit verdot. Hand-picked and sorted, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, on skins for up to a month, matured for 12 months in French oak (35% new). This is the serious side of '17. The aromas and flavours are still fresh and vibrant, but the palate, in particular, brooks no argument: this is a wine for protracted cellaring to allow the whipcord-tight structure to relax its grip." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

About This Wine

Fruit was sourced from the original 1969 plantings on the estate, all established on own roots and unirrigated.

Stylish, lifted nose settling into itself after a few years in bottle. Shows signature blackberry, aniseed, sarsaparilla, marzipan and cassis with hints of bergamot and sage. A medium-bodied “classic” Bordeaux style featuring a fleshy, fruit-layered palate integrated with earthy complexity. Juicy acidity, characteristic of this vineyard, underlays soft expansive fruit and fine dusty tannins. In true Yarra Yering tradition, it combines power with poise, concentration with finesse. This is a wine for the long haul that will reward patience with abundance.

All fruit at Yarra Yering is hand-picked and delivered direct to the winery. The fruit was destemmed and partially crushed directly to the Yarra Yering half-tonne open-fermenters. These small fermenters allow us to experiment with varying length of time of skins to draw additional tannin and structure from extended skin contact. The resultant blend was aged for 18 months in 80% new French oak barriques.
