2002 YarraYering No2 without a doubt some serious Filthy Good Vino!

Loved this vintage. Making wine in 2002 was the definition of true love. Yields were close to 0.5 tonnes/acre. Economic viability was not a factor in 2002. We would have had to charge $300 a bottle to make any money! Intensity was insane, yet, the No2 retained the delicacy you’d expect from a YY. Personality & refinement. Seeing this wine evolve is a demonstration of excellence, showing how wines of real personality that have the fruit to back it tell even more intriguing stories as they age! Wine wisdom!

An often missed detail of the YY labels is the leaves that adourn them. The are Bay Leaves, also known as Laurel, not vine leaves. A tribute to Laurel, the Doc’s other true love. There is a beautiful Laurel at the Cellar Door. It’s a tree with a real connection to the history of the winery and the founders.

If you want to know more about Yarra Yering, I share some of my thoughts from the four vintages I enjoyed with the Doc in The Winemaking Years – Vintage 1996 Yarra Yering Part 1 & Vintage 2001-2003 Yarra Yering.
