Yarra Yering Dry White Wine No. 1 2015, Yarra Valley, AUD $50
Some wines have an interminable quality that commands you to love them, even though you’re not quite sure why. Dry White Wine No. 1 from Yarra Yering is one such wine.
It is not obvious, nor is it is showy. It is not excessively fruity or overly complicated. What it has is balance and superb palate weight, created through the skilful use of skin contact and malolactic fermentation. There is a gentle, inherent savouriness plus some beautiful lemons tones. The finish is long and highly satisfying. And although beautiful now, it will reveal further layers as it ages. Worth every cent. Highly recommended.
