The Cabernet Sauvignon was de-stemmed and crushed into open stainless steel fermenters, roto-fermenters or closed fermenters. Extended maceration for 28 days of some selected parcels to improve tannic structure. Hand plunged and `rack and return' methods of cap management allow gentle extraction of fine grain tannins whilst providing fruit concentration. 15 months in French oak adds supporting spicy, vanillan oak.

Expert Reviews

A well- made cabernet from a top vintage, matured in the right proportions of new and used French oak. It has vibrant cassis fruit, fine, but persistent, tannins, the palate medium to full- bodied and very long., balance its outstanding feature. Rating 95 - Drink by 2032, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

This Yarra Valley Cabernet release fromYering Station isn't the easiest wine to get your head around. Or not as a young wine, it isn't. It's made from 20- year - old vines and is matured for 15 months in all- French oak.

In some respects, this is a beautiful wine. The fruit is pure and ripe and attarctive, all blackcurrant and mulberry and green/ black olives, with gum leaf notes sliding over the top. All is as you would hope and expect. The flavours dip slightly through the mid- palate though and then the tannin seems slightly awkward, which combined gives the wine a streakiness. It's like celebrating a goal and then having it declared that it was touched/ off-side. My guess is that time will sort this out; it's very young; the quality of the fruit flavour here is too good to be held back. Rating 91+ - Drink by 2018 - 2024+, Campbell Mattinson, (MAY/2014).

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.
