Yarra Yering – Underhill Shiraz 2001

Yarra Yering, as the name implies, is from Yarra Valley in Victoria. If you’re not already familiar with Yarra Yering they make wines of distinction, with very low yields, very deep flavour and richness in both red and white wines that reflect Victoria’s elegant wine producing terroir.

This Underhill Shiraz has a lot of ripe juicy fruit flavour and chewy tannins, but with a more savoury dark chocolate and oak laying as its base. Length on the palate is long, and 9 years later this is perfect drinking time now. Back vintages are available from 2001 to 2007.

Yarra Yering have a good range of eclectic fine wines, including what I like to compare together of the Dry Red No. 1, 2 and 3.

  1. Try De Bortoli Estate Grown Yarra Valley Syrah. You should find it for under $30. Steve Webber is producing some great wines under the De Bortoli label. As the name tells you, it has a European influence!

  2. winestopper – Thanks, I appreciate what you're saying. For that same elegant styled Shiraz, I also like Leasingham Classic Clare Shiraz which will also age well (about $30-40), or Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz which really shows a lot from Canberra region and is only about $25. Ben Hughes – Good wine thank you for ur input!
