Yarra Valley Syrah 2019

Bright, light, transparent, only lightly extracted. Floral Cote Rotie-esque perfumes. Glimmering with red and purple berries on the palate, plus some subtle herbal notes. Joyful. Such a fresh rendition of syrah in the Souhaut mold. — 3 hours ago

Underhill Shiraz 2012

Initially reductive with aromas of H2S which blew off. Vegetal stalky notes with red fruits. A medium weight palate with a little raspberry and those whole bunch stalky notes. Needed a little more mid palate fruit. In the elegant style - I have had better examples of Underhill. — 14 days ago

Yes it was a sad day when Dr Bailey Carrodus, the founder and winemaker of YY passed away. He was a brilliant viticulturalist (nobody had better kept vines) and learnt to become an equally brilliant winemaker. I met him once at the winery and spoke to him a couple of times on the phone. Somewhat of an eccentric - he never entered his wines in Royal Shows which is the usual pathway for recognition for Aussie wineries. I have a few bottles left of the 2008 Dry Red No. 1 which turned out to be his last vintage. These days the winemaker is the highly talented Sarah Crowe who was Winemaker of the year in Oz a few years ago. My gripe is the prices have gone up markedly under the new owners. The Underhill I had was $92. There is a new super premium range now called YY Carrodus honouring the good doctor and starting at $250 per bottle.

@Bob McDonald, pricing is a major constraint for me now., too. Underhill is well north of $150 USD. Far beyond my pain-threshold now.

@Ron R $150USD is worth around $176.50AUD so that is a large mark up. Too dear IMO.

Vintage Port 1911

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, thin and very old looking. Notes of brown sugar, molasses, some wood. Medicinal. In the mouth it’s different than what I expected. Tastes like Port, but looks and smells like Madeira. Someone guesses Vin Santo. But based on the taste I go with old Port. — 5 days ago

GC Cote Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

For me this is a astonishing wine, this is pure elegance and quality! The winemaker has done a awesome job, this is burgundy style Chardonnay from the highest level! A Lafon nose and great balanced wine! Love it! — 19 days ago

Yarra Yering

Dry Red N°1 Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

I have had this wine for a period of time and have been interested in opening it for some time. This is ths 2010 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot from Yarra Valley Australia.

On the nose there are strong notes of black cherry, blackberry, heavy licorice, tar, tobacco, black pepper, green bell pepper, leather and dark rich earth.

On the palate there are good expressive notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, green bell pepper, tar, black currant and earth.

The wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, medium to medium+ acidity and medium to medium+ fine tannins with a medium to long black fruit tar finish. A beautiful bottle of wine with many years of life left. Continue having a wonderful week and make the remainder prosperous. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
