Yarra Yering was established in 1969 at the foot of the Warramate Hills in Victoria's Yarra Valley by Doctor Bailey Carrodus.
The cellar door is open for wine tasting seven days a week at this, one of the best, oldest and most beautiful Yarra Valley vineyards.
Vineyard management places the emphasis on sustainability, hand picking, hand pruning and cropping at low levels to produce intensely flavoured fruit with great colour and high levels of natural acidity.
The original 30 acre vineyard has gradually been expanded to just on 70 acres of vines with a broad range of varieties from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir through to Cabernet and Shiraz to Portuguese varieties planted on terraces at the top of the vineyard.
The wines are made in the Carrodus designed winery with purpose built equipment. Small batch fermentation in half tonne stainless steel fermenters, pressing in the hand cranked basket press and maturation in a mixture of new and old French oak barriques produces wines of great intensity and finesse.
Elegant, supple and strongly varietal, the wines are attractive while young but will reward cellaring under the proper conditions, reaching their peak of complexity and sophistication after 15 to 20 years in the bottle.
Over the past 40 years Yarra Yering has earned an international reputation as a consistent producer of fine wines evidenced by its naming by American Wine and Spirit Magazine as one of the 2010 top 100 wineries in the world.
Dr Carrodus died in 2008 but the traditions he established are being built upon by Winemaker Sarah Crowe and the vineyard staff who have tended the vines at Yarra Yering for the past thirty years.
