Expert Reviews

Co- fermented with viognier and matured in a mix of new and used French barriques, the colour bright and clear; it is an unqualified success, with vibrant red cherry and plum fruit, fine tannins and integrated oak. Rating 94 - Drink by 2026, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013).

Shiraz out of the 2011 Yarra Valley vintage with a bit of heft. 95% Shiraz, 5% Viognier, all co- fermented. Aged in 500 litre French oak puncheons.

Medium- weight wine with pepper and dried, woody spice laid on. This is the thing: it's persistent. It sets it apart. It tastes of cherries and plums with tobacco- leaf and game notes - together with all that spice. This is an upper release for this label. Rating 93+ - Drink by 2016 - 2022+, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (MAY/2014).

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.
