Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No 2 2015, Yarra Valley, AUD $100

Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2 is an outstanding wine. It has that rare combination of richness and reserve, plus a dignity and composure that few wines have. Not to mention the seamless integration of its elements. I love its succulence, without excessive fruitiness as well as its brightness, energy and subtle savouriness. Predominantly made from shiraz (95%) with a touch of viognier, mataro and marsanne. Extremely youthful now – allow it time to grow. (Screwcap)
