Seduction by Wine!

Yarra Yering Dry Red No.2 2015

Lucious PerfumedShirazYarra Valley

The original Shiraz Viognier blend .. with an edge of Marsanne & Mataro!

The No.2 is Seduction in a bottle. It’s not your average Shiraz Viognier, beyond the Marsanne and Mataro it’s got a few secret ingredients in it that add that extra bit of intrigue! The incredibly supply texture is matched by lucious fruit, spice and perfume that is simple stated intoxicating.

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

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!

Fragrance and headiness, this wine exudes intense perfume, mixed berry fruits, floral notes and spice. The addition of Mataro and co-fermentation with white grapes Viognier and Marsanne intensify the Shiraz character while providing complexity, richness and generosity.
