Yarra Yering Dry Red #2 Red Blend 750 mL

"2018’s Australian Winemaker of the Year Sarah Crowe returns with another whizz-bang Shiraz from the cool(er) climate of Yarra Valley, near Melbourne. Hard to describe Yarra wines except by discounting what they aren’t: they don’t have the confected fruit compote of McLaren Vale, they don’t have the black pepper of Barossa, nor are they as light footed as Norther Rhône Syrahs or rigidly structured like Margaret River wines. What they do have is a friendly, comfort-food exterior that can somewhat belie enormous reservoirs of thermo-nuclear inner strength. Often called an “iron fist in a velvet glove”, Dry Red No 2 is teeming with white pepper, red Nibs and baking chocolate, the body is plenty full but can still do pull-ups, the finish – and it’s famous for this – peers into the portal to forever. Outstanding vintage for a wine notorious for its vintage variation." - Jordan Carrier, Everything Wine Vintage Room Consultant.

  • Dry Red Wine No. 2 reveals a medium-deep garnet-purple color and fragrant notes of mulberries, spiced blackberries and black cherries with nuances of violets, peach blossoms and incense. Full-bodied and opulently fruited in the mouth, it has a firm level of velvety tannins, refreshing acid and a very long, spicy finish.
  • 98 POINTS! James Halliday, 2014 Vintage

    “Largely shiraz, with a small amount of mataro added and co-fermented with viognier and marsanne. Brought back an instant recollection of the Bayeux Tapestry. It commences with a Catherine wheel of aromas, flavours and textures which are astounding, and - you think - leave nothing more to be said. But there's more, much more. For one thing, it is a sacrilege to spit out any of the wine when tasting it, for the autopilot is still working furiously trying to capture the interplay between the infinitely complex fruit flavours, the charcuterie, the spices, the earth, the tannins, the oak, and the licorice.”
