How cool is it when wines of exalted status live up to the billing.?This wine is exceptional. Ripe cassis fruit, juicy acid and a whiff of herbs. Yes herbs.. Classic stuff. Fucking delicious.

Again, so nice, love the balance of the string flavors with the acidity.

All fruit at Yarra Yering is hand-picked into 10kg picking buckets in the cool of the morning, and delivered direct to the winery. The fruit is sorted, then either destemmed or crushed into the traditional Yarra Yering “tea chest” 0.5-tonne open-fermenters. Depending on the variety, stalks may be added back during the fermentation stage in baskets for easy removal when there is just enough stalk tannin present. Occasionally there will be some 100% whole bunch fermenters for use as a blending component. The stainless steel lined wooden tea chest fermenters were designed to hold just the right amount of fruit to fit into the basket press. During fermentation they are hand plunged for gentle tannin extraction, initiated naturally or sometimes with a specific cultured yeast strain. Once fermentation is complete they will be basket pressed, preferred for its gentle separation of wine from the grape skins and seeds before being transferred via gravity to barrel. Completes malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. Pleasingly unusual in its initial presentation, redolent of roasted carrots and turmeric, Indian spiced cauliflower. Resolves into a more familiar kalamata olive and ripe red fruit character, with some notes that push the profile towards a bigger, almost chocolatey, vanilla-laced Australian character with a velvety smooth, Syrah-like mouthfeel. The sweet glazed root vegetable flavors remain, quite welcome and delicious.

Class. Beautiful subtle austere nose. Pavarotti on a trampoline - baritone but not heavy. Amazing complex fruit with super fine tannins and grip. Amazing. Sues 47th bday dinner Tartufo

The fruit really comes out. Entertaining while not being annoying.

Amazing regal cab nose. Full rounded, austere but not heavy. Quality of the fruit screams. Still a bit closed but awesome
