Cool, dry start to season had us waiting in anticipation and we were not disappointed. A classic cool, long ripening vintage providing intense fruit flavours and lingering concentration. 2011 displays focus, richness and a youthfulness not seen since 2005.

Expert Reviews

Made from estate- grown grapes, and spent 11 months in tight- grained French oak (35% new); very light colour, it has small red fruit flavours and a background of milky tannins and integrated, cedary oak. Finer and more supple than Village, but with less depth. Rating 91 - Drink by 2016, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013).

As a drink, I've kind of come round to a lot of 2011 Victorian Pinot Noirs.

Pretty spicy and peppery, strawberry, fennel and cedar with a little mulch. Light bodied, spicy with sweet red fruits, almost a gummy feel, then light dry tannin and fresh acidity - almost a chalkiness to the texture - finish is drier than the palate. No great length, but altogether engaging and interesting to drink. No question it's Pinot Noir either. Rating 90 - Drink by 2014 - 2018+, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (OCT/2014).

Bright, red cherry

Dark cherry, blackberry and vanilla bean spice with brooding richness. Lovely lifted violet perfume sweetness.

Integrated red/ black cherry fruit create a platform balanced by velvet tannins overlayed by svelt oak spices. Expressive wine of an exceptional cool climate harvest.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
