Boutique Wines

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.


Yarra Yering

2010 Dry Red No2

Fragrance & headiness to the fore, this wine exudes intense perfume, red fruits, floral notes and spice. The addition of Mataro & Co-Fermentation with white grapes Viognier & Marsanne intensify the Shiraz character.

96 Points - James Halliday

95+ Points - Robert Parker

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.

Restrained & Elegant. Shows signature blackberry, aniseed, sarsaparilla, marzipan & cassis. A classic "claret" style.

James Halliday - 96 Points

Cabernet sauvignon leads the blend, with smaller amounts of merlot, malbec and petit verdot. The hue is good, the fragrant, berry-filled bouquet faithfully reflected in the vibrant, medium-bodied palate where fruit, oak and tannins coalesce into a triumphantly harmonious whole.
