Overview

Medium bodied and laden with concentrated dark berry fruit. Fresh herbs and subtle savoury spices, soft tannins, finishing with vanillin oak.

2010 was a wonderful change from the previous three harvests. Even flowering proceeded a long cool ripening period. These conditions help shape structure, purity and finess. Hand picked and fermented in open top 5 tonne fermenters. Gentle hand plunging and an extended macerarion provide ample structure and fine silky tannins.

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.
