Introducing Yarra Yering's Signature Shiraz: a distinguished expression of the renowned Yarra Valley terroir, meticulously crafted to captivate the senses and elevate the art of winemaking. Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Victoria, Australia, our vineyards boast a rich heritage dating back to the original plantings of Shiraz in 1969, with subsequent additions in the 1990s, alongside the infusion of Mataro and Viognier vines planted from 1984 to 1995.

Hand-picked with precision, each grape undergoes a journey of careful selection, crossing a sorting table before being gently destemmed directly into our iconic half-tonne open-fermenters. Here, we strive to retain as many whole berries as possible, preserving their essence to enrich the wine's aromatic profile. A touch of complexity is introduced with the addition of frozen Viognier skins to select fermenters, infusing the blend with subtle floral notes.

Aged to perfection for 15 months in French oak barriques, with a judicious 30% of new oak, our Shiraz matures gracefully, allowing its multifaceted character to flourish before blending and bottling.

Upon uncorking, our Signature Shiraz unveils a symphony of aromas, with notes of violets, plums, and savory spices intertwining with hints of bramble and five spice. On the palate, the wine reveals its complexity, offering a medley of summer pudding fruits in vibrant hues, enhanced by nuances of cigar box and cardamom spice that intrigue the senses.

Balanced and nuanced, our Shiraz marries firm yet fine tannins with a textural finesse that drives the palate, leaving a lasting impression that defies categorization. Sweet and savory, bold yet elegant, this wine defies conventions, inviting you to indulge in its boundless complexity and discover the myriad layers of flavor that await within each sip. Yarra Yering's Signature Shiraz is more than a wine—it's an experience that transcends expectation and leaves an indelible mark on the palate.

Tasting Profile

A complex and layered wine; sweet and savoury all at once. The fragrance is a melting pot of violets, plums, savoury spices and a whiff of bramble and five spice.
Moderate in weight; the summer pudding fruits come in all colours dialling up the flavour interest. There is cigar box and cardamom spice lending intrigue. Firm yet fine tannins ably support the fruit and texture drive the palate. This one is hard to put in a box, there is so much to love.
