Excellent Langton's Classification. The timeless Claret style of red wine, this is the bespoke blend on which Yarra Yering's reputation was built and continues to endure. Almost deceptively, they drink well in their youth, yet are known to evolve for decades. Half Cabernet, a fifth of Merlot, the balance in Malbec and Petit Verdot, all harvested off the original 1969 unirrigated estate plantings at Gruyere in Yarra Valley. Beautifully balanced and integrated, the fruit of an iconic vineyard, such delicacy within a sleeping powerhouse of precision.
Eighty acres are planted to noble varietals and port wine grapes. The dry grown vines are pruned to yield no more than two tons per acre. No.1 Dry red is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Grapes are hand picked into specially designed stackable plastic buckets. Crushing takes place within two hours of picking through the old Amos crusher/ destemmer, then poured into Dr. Carrodus' extraordinary fermenters, which are essentially stainless steel lined tea chests on wheels. Should cooling be necessary, ice blocks are used. A third of this wine is left on skins for three weeks before being transferred to barrel. Dry Red No.1 is matured for up to two years in completely new French oak.
TASTING NOTES
Deep, bright ruby coloured wine. isplays a concentrated essence of red berry fruits and blackcurrant with an olive and mint background. Has a deep, structured palate that is interwoven with cedary, French oak characters. The ripe fruit and tannins run in unison along the entire palate.

About Yarra Yering Wines
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»
