YARRA YERING VIOGNIER 2005

Wine Region: Yarra Valley, Australia

Grapes: Viognier 

Ratings

James Halliday, Wine Companion 96 pts - A blend of shiraz, mataro, viognier and marsanne, shiraz the major player. The hue is excellent, the bouquet is fragrant, and the medium-bodied palate positively sings; the red fruits are wreathed in a web of fine spices, mainly fruit-derived, but in part from French oak. A lovely, unforced wine. Drink now or in 20 years time. 

 

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.
