Description

Yarra Yering New Territories Shiraz Touriga

Aroma & Bouquet: An exotic floral fragrance, blackcurrant fruits, black plums and a cured meat char.

Palate: Shiraz brings a juicy expansive fruit palate and minimal tannin extraction. The Touriga Naçional, being naturally high in tannins, brings structure and spice to the blend.

Winemaking

Whole berry fermentation was encouraged with both varieties to encourage a fleshy fruit-full palate. Gentle hand plunging twice daily for minimal tannin extraction. The individual components spent 9 months in old French oak barriques in our underground cellar before blending and bottling.

 This wine has been made with the intention to be an early drinking style of wine; fragrant, generous and delicious in its youth. It will continue to evolve for some years under suitable cellaring conditions however this is not required. Please drink it and enjoy it!

Vines

Shiraz sourced from the Salamenca block and Touriga Naçional sourced from a terraced block that sits above the Shiraz. When the original Touriga naçional vines were planted, the land where it was grown was reclaimed form the encroaching bushland and this area was dubbed the New Territories.

Producer

Wine was grown in Victoria’s Yarra Valley from the mid 1800’s through to the 1920’s and was a principal export of the new colony.

Wine production by the wineries of the Yarra Valley came to a halt in the 1920’s due to the economics of the day, changing tastes and the high price of wool. 
It would need a visionary to re-establish winemaking in the Yarra Valley and in 1969 one came along. Dr Bailey Carrodus was ideally qualified to become a great vigneron.

Having completed his degree in horticulture at Victoria University in Wellington New Zealand, he worked for a time as a scientific consultant to the New Zealand Department of Agriculture.

He took a second degree, this time in winemaking at Roseworthy Agricultural College in South Australia, where he also taught for some time before moving on to complete his Doctor of Philosophy for research into plant physiology at Queens College, Oxford University in 1965.

A residential college at Queens now carries the name “Carrodus Quad” in his honour.

Inspired by the elegance and sophistication of the wines he encountered at Oxford, Dr. Carrodus embarked on a study tour of the best vineyards and wineries of France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Afterwards, he took up a position at Melbourne University and began the search for a vineyard site on which to produce wine in the style he had grown to love. His search brought him to Victoria’s Yarra Valley.

Yarra Yering quickly gained an international reputation for quality and individuality and for the next 35 years Dr Carrodus made his wines to great critical and commercial success.

Dr Carrodus died at home in September 2008 and the vineyard was subsequently sold to two businessman, both passionate Yarra Yering fans. They have continued to operate this iconic vineyard with the same philosophy.

Frequently named among the top Yarra Valley wineries, Yarra Yering’s proud tradition is being continued to great acclaim by current winemaker Sarah Crowe.

Sarah, who was recently named James Halliday’s 2017 Winemaker of the Year, focuses on giving individual blocks and varieties the time and attention they deserve to continue making high-quality wine.
