Yering Station Little Yering Shiraz Viognier 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

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. The vineyard is a small 2.5-acre patch planted in the mid 1980's on an easterly aspect. The vines are typically low cropping and produce just 1.2 tonnes of grapes per acre. The addition of a small amount of Viognier to fermenting grapes is a technique used for many years by the producers in the Northern Rhone appellation 'Cote Rotie', this adds an opulent, aromatic quality to the nose and softens the palate. The resulting wine is dark red in colour with spicy black pepper aromas that dominate the nose, underneath there is a complex array of violet, blackberry jam, liquorice and fine oak. The palate is silky and rich, with a wonderful poise. There are layers of concentrated, fine-grained tannins with loads of powerful fruit, these flavours cascade through the palate and provide a wonderful length of flavour with a persistent finish. Has enough concentration and structure to hold its own with the most full flavoured of foods - Beef, Lamb and mature cheese.
