Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No.1 2017

The Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No.1 is a classic claret-style red wine and is the blend on which Yarra Yering’s reputation was built. Always medium-bodied and low in alcohol suggesting delicacy, but nonetheless is a sleeping powerhouse of precision, intensity and concentration that demands a requisite amount of time in bottle to unfurl and allow the drinker in. Principally, the blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (66%) with Merlot (16%), Malbec (15%) and a little Petit Verdot (3%) added to the mix. Aged for 15 months in French oak barriques (40% new) the wine is bottled via gravity and without filtration. Stylish, lifted nose settling into itself after a few years in bottle. A medium-bodied “classic” Bordeaux style featuring a fleshy, fruit-layered palate integrated with earthy complexity. In true Yarra Yering tradition, it combines power with poise, concentration with finesse. This is a wine for the long haul that will reward patience with abundance.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

Two bottles, both corked

It’s a lovely wine when the cork doesn’t disintegrate. Sadly two out of two have. Cork literally goes to pieces as soon as you insert corkscrew.
