Expert Reviews

Estate wine. Honey drew, white peach, a little almond and ginger spice oak. Good flavour, zesty acid, even flow and a persistent finish offering lime and spice as a farewell. Has an effortless appeal and built-in ease of drinking. Light flinty textural touches are at play too. Excellent value. Yum. Rating 93 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, November 2011

An altogether elegant wine, precisely that expected of this vintage and the Village label. It is as much minerally as it is fruity, the presence of oak a matter of texture as much as flavour. If you want a little more flesh and don't mind sacrificing some of the freshness, cellar for 2-3 years.

Rating 90 - Drink by 2016 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Winery Profile

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.
