Shiraz Mataro Viognier Marsanne Yarra Valley Victoria
Yarra Yering's Dry Reds are national flagships, based around complex varietal blends. Assigning the mercurial cepage 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.
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 Cotes du Rhone, 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.
