Expert Reviews

Light, clear crimson; a high class Yarra Valley Pinot from a great vintage; this isn't about depth or power per se, all about intensity, finesse and length to its ultra- fragrant and supremely long palate, red fruits in a wreath of spice and silky tannins, the oak influence restrained and integrated. Rating 96 - Drink by 2022, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2013).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright kenyan ruby in colour.

Aroma

Intoxicating mix of exotic blue violet perfume, savoury spice and briary fruits. Subtle chocolate and cherry oak compliment this graceful Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.

Palate

Elegance personified. Rich red/black cherries coupled with a silky middle palate. These are the characters that winemakers dream of! Concentra tion and beauty only achieved in remarkable years.

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.
