Little Yering Pinot Noir Australien Yering Station 2008
Victoria's first vineyard, Yering Station, is located in the 'heart' of the Yarra Valley only one hours drive from Melbourne. As a family-owned winery, Yering Station has been recognised for its commitment to excellence, recently being inducted into the Australian Tourism Awards 'Hall of Fame' for Best Tourism Winery, 2005. Yering Station is renowned for producing award-winning wines of world-class quality and distinction. Now led by Winemaker Willy Lunn, Yering Station was honoured with the prestigious `Winemaker of the Year’ at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London, 2004. This Pinot Noir offers up aromas of lifted strawberry and red cherry fruit with gamey notes, complimented with subtle vanillin oak. The palate is well structured and persistent with great depth of fruit and savouriness on the finish. Excellent with poultry such as duck or meaty fish dishes such as tuna.
Heavy in oaky/vanilla aromas, with strong notes of peaches and red fruit coming out, along with menthol. The body attacks smoothly and gently, with light rounded acids, which are pleasant and contribute to the apricot notes on the finish.
Lots of strawberry cordial greet the nose with just a hint of old leather. More candied strawberry on mid-palate with a clean, straight-up short finish. This is a very nice, correct wine with a lightness begging for 20 minutes in the refrigerator prior to opening and serving as a summer evening sipper. A good introduction to Pinot Noir and a good model for everyday, cool climate wine. A value offering. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival.
Appearance: medium garnet Nose: Black cherries, almost an astringent smell Palate: Gamey, dark cherries (like dried cherries), and just a hint of oak (but not much, and not as much as I wanted). The taste lingers subtly for a little while, which is actually very pleasant. Conclusion: good wine - especially at $8.99
