Wine Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Black cherry fruits dominate the palate and a pinch of Chinese five spice. A silky elegance combined with a defined tannin structure, both grape and oak tannin to produce a medium-bodied yet powerful style. A Pinot noir that will reward cellaring.
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.
