Yarra Yering's Dry Reds are national flagships, based around complex varietal blends. Assigning the mercurial cépage of grapes a unique bin number, has liberated the winemaker to modify the mix as styles evolve. No.2 Dry Red is a perfumed, mostly Shiraz wine, rich and generous, co-fermented with inclusions of Mourvedre, Viognier and Marsanne for vibrancy, suppleness and an extra dimension to the range of expression. Feminine and seductive, beguiling yet elegant, with long, lingering impressions of violets and eucalypt, cherries and spiced plum.
Inspired by the complex and eclectic styles, famously originating from the Shiraz grape's spiritual home within the diverse appellations of Vallee Rhône. In true stylistic authenticity, Mourvedre, Viognier and Marsanne add a further element of intrigue. Yarra Yering can boast of a splendid terroir, grey silty clay loam with bands of gravel for good drainage, on a north facing slope, high enough out of the Yarra Valley to avoid late spring frosts. Complex and traditional winemaking methods are employed to craft this most extraordinary, some would say eccentric, of Yarra Valley reds. The internationally renowned Dry Red No.2 is perpetually fine tuned as the team adjust the proportions of fruit to the performance of vintage.
TASTING NOTES
Dark garnet colour. Sweet ripe and plummy nose, vanilla spice and tobacco oak. Chewy and delicious palate, perfectly harmonized Shiraz tannins and fruit, the magnificence of an aged Côtes du Rhône, a complex spectrum of flavours, soaring prominently against a backwash of quenching acids and sunny palate warmth. A concentrated, long lived and elegant wine, always ranked amongst the first growth of Australian Shiraz.

About Yarra Yering Winery
Yarra Yering is one of Victoria's and Australia's most treasured little boutique winerys, yielding little berries of enticingly flavoured grapes that are crafted into magical red wines
After a lengthy search for the penultimate terroir and microclimate, Dr. Bailey Carrodus chose a site in the Yarra Valley which seemed to meet all the requirements, grey silty clay loam with bands of gravel for good drainage, on a north-facing slope high enough out of the valley to avoid late spring frosts. The site has fulfilled all expectations producing a wide range of quality fruit, from Pinot Noir to Touriga Nacional for a fortified red wine. Most of the 12-hectare plot was planted in 1969 and the 1973 vintage was the first commercial wine produced in the valley since 1921. Yarra Yering»
