2017 Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz
A single block of Shiraz planted in 1973; 8 acres at the western extremity of the Yarra Yering vineyard.
New world cool climate Shiraz starts here. Heady black plum fruits and pretty violet aromatics interlaced with liquorice spice and nettle undergrowth. The heavier clay based soil produces wine with dark fruits and spice and chewy tannins create the framework to support the fruit and savoury undertones. Sarah Crowe, winemaker
‘The fragrant and oh so vitally fresh red and purple fruits spices and pepper are a serenade to the vintage.’ - 97 Points, 2020 Halliday Wine Companion
