Overview

This Viognier from our Springlane vineyard had 80% of its cane cut, effectively pruning the vines once the bunches had reached optimal ripeness, Cutting the canes stops the ripening process but as the bunches themselves have not been touched, they are left naturally to start to desiccate;

As Viognier has a naturally thick and tough skin, we destem and crush the berries into a picking bin, the extra moisture provided by the fresh berries helps to re hydrate the desiccated berries and extract more sugar and flavour.

Winery Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Bright yellow gold

NOSE: Very aromatic nose with lots of ginger spice, bergamot and candied orange peel

PALATE: Spices on the nose carry through to the palate with the added layers of tropical lychee and apricots. There is an unctuous mouthful but the wine remains fresh and vibrant thanks to a mineral line of acidity running through

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.
