Overview

A very cool start to the season saw us waiting in anticipation! Two heat events pushed the ripening period into March/April. The challenge being to keep the vines cool and pick them in the optimal conditions. 2009 wines show punchy fruit with a firm backbone and a great finish.

Expert Reviews

Light, bright red-purple; an uncommon blend in the Yarra Valley, snatched from the jaws of smoke and fire in Feb '09; is distinctly rich and concentrated, French oak a contributor to the blackberry and blackcurrant fruit; if there is any smoke taint, it's so far hidden by the exuberance of the fruit. However, best drink earlier than later. Rating 93 - Drink by 2014 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2011)

Red Five Star Winery - Australian Wine Companion 2014

The historic Yering Station (or at least the portion of the property on which the cellar door sales and vineyard are established) was purchased by the Rathbone family in 1996 and is also the site of the Yarrabank joint venture with French Champagne house Devaux (see separate entry). A spectacular and very large winery has been erected, handling the Yarrabank sparkling wines and the Yering Station table wines. It immediately became one of the focal points of the Yarra Valley, particularly as the historic Chateau Yering, where luxury accommodation and fine dining are available, is next door. Yering Stations own restaurant is open every day for lunch, providing the best lunchtime cuisine in the Valley. In 2008 Tom Carson moved on and was replaced by William (Willy) Lunn, a graduate of Adelaide University with more than 24 years cool climate winemaking experience around the world, including at Petaluma, Shaw + Smith and Argyle Winery (Oregon). Exports to all major markets.
