I loved benchmarking this wine with Doc, he’d pull out verticals of Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild, Lafitte, Haut-Brion, after a serious look at the wines, we’d sit at his dining table jazz blaring in the background, the Yarra Valley sprawled in front of us, share a plate and what remained of the wines, just enjoy. Dry Red No.1 is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

It wasn’t just the great Bordeaux’s that fascinated us, the old Coonawarra Cabernets from the 1960’s and 1970’s were often in the mix. Back then the vineyards hadn’t seen machine pruning are harvesting, the wines, little new oak, as a result grapes were riper earlier, the wines freshers, more restrained and elegant with a beautiful core of fruit.

I had the great pleasure of working with Doc for just over 4 years. I had been in search of a winery that was pushing the boundaries of excellence and was fortunate enough to be introduced to Yarra Yering. Tasting the wines reminded me of some of the great old Australian and European wines Dad had cracked over time. Working with the man was a mind explosion.

The detail, thoughtful consideration of finer elements of the wine was evident from the first day we met. He was always ahead of his time, always in the pursuit of extra yumminess. In 1996 texture was a major focus, 10 years later the better producers in the industry were thinking texture.

You can read about my 1st vintage with Yarra Yering in 1996 in the Wine Bites Magazine. I’ll get to sharing more about my 2nd stint at YY from 2000-2004 soon. Stay tuned!

For Doc the worst fault a wine could have was not a technical one, it was for the wine to be boring! Most would agree you could never accuse a YY wine of being boring!
