Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2 2018Regular price $118.00
Shiraz, viognier, marsanne, mataro; a blend for the ages. A wonder that others have’t had a crack at the same. A gauntlet thrown down.
Slurpy, rich and fresh red of jolly, loose knit and spice-laden, come hither fruit character. Red plums, clove and cinnamon, dark chocolate-liquorice, faint game meat and dried herbs. Lots going on here in its meaty, fleshy feel. The lush slosh of flavour feels biggish and bold from front to mid palate, sweetish in that core, then finishes quite quickly to a powdery-tannin finish. Viognier in the driving seat. A chomp and chomp closes things each sip, nicely. A lively red of voluptuous feel, done well.
