YARRA YERING AGINCOURT CABERNET MALBEC 2011 - Straits Wine
 

YARRA YERING AGINCOURT CABERNET MALBEC 2011

Wine Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere), Australia

Grape: 75% Cabernet, 25% Malbec

 

Aroma & Bouquet
The Agincourt block is most easterly part of the vineyard looking north/north-east so has one of the most sheltered sites. The nose is classic cabernet cassis with the addition of leafy herbal notes, the Malbec contributing boldness and plummy fruit.


Palate
Agincourt consistently shows more upfront fruit, richness, herbaceaousness and generosity in youth than the Dry Red No. 1.

 

About the Winery

In 1973 Dr Bailey Carrodus released the first commercial vintage of wine from the Yarra Valley since 1923. The wines reflect this highly individual man, the site he chose so carefully, and the vagaries of the seasons in which they are produced. Today, Yarra Yering's Winemaker Sarah Crowe is honouring the tradition that Dr Carrodus started in 1969. She is focusing on giving individual blocks and varieties the time and attention they deserve to continue making high quality wine.
