Vintage 2020: A challenging year began with unstable weather during flowering resulting in poor fruit set. A dry summer followed with devastating bushfires in many viticultural regions but lucky for us, the Yarra Valley was spared this time. Late January brought a drop in temperature and regular rainfall. The wines from 2020 have a lot of grace, a cooler season and light crops presents in their fragrance, medium weight and bright acid line.
About the Winery: In 1973 Dr Bailey Carrodus released the first commercial vintage of wine from the Yarra Valley since 1923. The wines reflect this highly individual man, the site he chose so carefully, and the vagaries of the seasons in which they are produced. Today, Yarra Yering's Winemaker Sarah Crowe is honouring the tradition that Dr Carrodus started in 1969. She is focusing on giving individual blocks and varieties the time and attention they deserve to continue making high quality wine.
