Yering Station Pinot Noir-Yarra Yalley 2008

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. This Pinot Noir is ruby red in colour with uplifted aromas of black cherry and plum, complex floral undertones with hints of spice and tar. It is intensely rich, with a well balanced palate, where red berries and toasty oak are the dominant flavours, with an attractive savoury, spicy finish. A rich, silky and elegant wine. Serve it with duck, quail, goose and venison.

This is fruity and stemmy on the nose with a delightful aromatic profile that blends sour cherry and raspberry jam with a hint of cinnamon and a handful of sage and bay leaves. Crisp on entry with nice, juicy acidity and stiff little tannins, this shows off early cherry pit, dried herb and old wood flavors before laying on some gentle cranberry and rhubarb elements. There's a touch of dry spice here, almost white peppery but not baking spices, and they extend on the moderately long finish, which shows good focus and a lovely hint of dried herb. This is understated yet remains lively and interesting. 87pts
