Dr Baily Carrodus is something of a legend in Australian wine circles, mainly for his obvious pioneering character and intense dedication to his wines. He set about re-evaluating the soils and aspects of the Yarra Valley, which had previously been left derelict by changing tastes and heightened wool prices, with a view to creating a new winery, and he was captivated by the grey loam and gravel he found, perfect , he thought, for his kind of wine. So he planted the original 20 acres in 1969, and produced Red Wine no’s 1 and 2, for which he become duly famous.
Classic claret-style. This is the blend on which Yarra Yering’s reputation was initially built. Always medium-bodied, principally cabernet sauvignon with merlot, malbec and a little petit verdot added, it swallows every ounce of its 100% new oak. Consistently of the highest order in its balance and depth of flavour.
Jancis Robinson has included this blend in her 1989 book of the world’s top 40 wines.
