Expert Reviews

Vibrant straw-gold; still wonderfully youthful after more than seven years on lees, citrus and nectarine flavours more powerful and focused than the bready/yeast characters that have slowly built during the time on lees; the length of the palate is most impressive.

Rating 96 - James Halliday Wine Companion

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Meadow hay

Aroma

Oyster shell minerality combined with mature yeast development. Lovely honeycomb notes combine with ripe apple.

Palate

Incredibly focused line of intense mineral fruit typical of Yarrabank Late Disgorged. A creamy mousse rich with toasty toffee like flavours only found with extended yeast autolysis.

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.
