Yering Station Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

About the Estate "The Beginning of Yering Station The Scottish-born Ryrie brothers ventured into the Yarra Valley, acquiring 43,000 acres and naming the land 'Yering', its Aboriginal name. The brothers planted two grape varieties but primarily used the land for their cattle. During the early 1850s Paul de Castella took ownership of Yering Station and began developing from what remained primarily a cattle station into a landmark of winemaking in Victoria. "For years the Yering Station vineyard was one of the largest in the area, and visitors and holiday makers to the Yarra Valley increased. Wines from this new region began to make their mark on the world, with Yering taking out awards such as the Argus Gold Cup for best Victorian Vineyard in 1861 and a Grand Prix at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1889, where only fourteen awards were ever presented internationally. "Yering Station Modern History "After changing hands several times throughout the early-to-mid 1900s, Yering Station was purchased by the Rathbone family in 1996. "As lovers of wine, the Rathbone family had contemplated the idea of becoming wine producers for many years. Having planted the Laura Barnes Vineyard in 1995 and with the family's background in agriculture, manufacturing and their passion for the wine industry, the purchase of Yering Station was an obvious step forward. This natural progression coupled with a combination of family talents allowed them to develop a successful business around quality wine. The Rathbone’s purchase of Yering Station was a big year for the property bringing forth the successful venture with Champagne Devaux. "Yering continues to be a family owned and operated winery dedicated to producing wines of quality and distinction. The Rathbone family is committed to providing an environment that allows its passionate young team to thrive. "Yering Station Today "In 2008 Willy Lunn joined Yering Station as the Chief Winemaker. Willy continues to be a welcome addition to the Yering Station team and his passion for the industry and commitment to encouraging a strong culture will allow Yering to thrive. The importance of proud heritage is still a visible and prominent feature of the property, including the original avenue of elms, heritage-listed barn and early winery building (which is now home to the Yering cellar door). "The Rathbone family's vision for the property has led to major accomplishments including winning the 'International Winemaker of the Year' at the highly established International Wine and Spirit Competition, London 2004; and the property being inducted into the Australian Tourism Awards 'Hall of Fame' in 2006." - Winery

On the nose, this wine has more presence than Little Yering with more complexity; more leather, more nuanced strawberry notes tinged with a touch of spice. There is a solid core of fruit that does not evaporate like floral water, so more of an old world charm with a bit of brightness, if muted. The color matches the finish - longer and deeper than the entry level wine. An excellent and reasonably priced introduction to Pinot Noir. Recommended. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver INternational Wine Festival.

Mild red fruit aroma, very minerally body with bits of richer strawberry fruit coming out in the finish, which is dry with kind of a saccharine quality. Pretty typical pinot noir, light bodied.

Very big, spicy, hot! Very light color. White shiraz? Very odd!

With aromas of herbs, cherries, raspberries, and warm spices on the palate, this medium-bodied wine is quite stunning. Open a bottle tonight and you'll immediately understand why Yering Station has received tremendous accolades in Australia this past year.

Fine and elegant. Generous enough with its meaty black cherry and sweet spice flavors to carry the day, echoing the flavors nicely on the refined finish. Drink now through 2007.

Shows a nice synthesis of juicy red plum, earth, and leather on the palate. A medium-sized wine, but feels pretty big for a Yarra Pinot; has a nice tannic grip in midpalate, and smooth tannins on the medium-length finish.

Medium red. Aromas of red berries, cured meat and underbrush. Medium-bodied and gently structured, with good grip to the raspberry fruit and nicely integrated acidity. Finishes with good length and a sweet note of kirsch.

With aromas of herbs, cherries, raspberries and warm spices on the palate, this wine is delicious, medium-bodied, and stunning. Open a bottle tonight and you'll immediately understand why Yering Station has received tremendous accolades in Australia this past year.
