Tonight we uncorked a bottle from Victorian producer Yarra Yering. The Dry Red No.1 is a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot.
The age (2004) has certainly given the wine a pleasant texture and unique bouquet. The cork was nice and clean, the wine was decanted into a Riedel Amadeus decanter.
The wine was of a plum red colour, the bouquet contained hints of currants (black currant?), pepper and undertones of oak(?).
Medium bodied, good texture with a medium-long finish. Consumed with crimson snapper, coriander and ginger.
A very nice change of pace from Cabernet/Shiraz/Pinot. Recommended to impress friends and family for the variety of flavours.
