You may have heard me recently mention the re-birth of the Yarra Valley in the 1970s as a wine-producing region. Yarra Yering was in fact the first of these estates that was established in 1969, by Dr. Bailey Carrodus. When he passed away in 2008 the property was sold and has gone through somewhat of an evolution since then, whilst still retaining its core. These 2006 wines were purchased by myself while I was working in the Yarra Valley, and if I remember correctly it was after Dr. Carrodus passed away. I actually bought them well before they opened their cellar door, on their then annual open days. So I thought I would open them both, and talk about them. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
