Aroma & Bouquet
Fragrant with wild berries and cardamom spices, some nettle and charcuterie
Fragrant with wild berries and cardamom spices, some nettle and charcuterie complexity. Leading with the powerful fruit and licorice spice of Touriga Naçional, the Tinta Cão lends its bright and fragrant blue fruit energy. Tinta Roriz brings a savoury depth to the palate to compliment the Tinta Amarela’s floral and bay leaf herbal lift. To tie everything together the finesse of Alvarelhão and the acidity of the Sousão tightens and drives the long palate.
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.
