Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose Citrus and subtle cashew notes with soft minerality and great freshness. Clean & minerally. On the palate Good texture and roundness on the middle palate, linear acidity with wonderful length and precision.

About Yering Station:

The first vineyard in Victoria, Yering Station was originally planted in 1838. Its acquisition in 1996 by the Rathbone family marked the beginning of a new era, with the construction of a state-of-the-art winery and award winning tourism complex (Winner: 2003-04 Australian Tourism Award for Tourism Wineries).

The winemaking team lead by Tom Carson (nominated for the Qantas Australian Gourmet Traveller WINE Winemaker of the Year 2004) take a non-interventionist approach to allow full expression of the characteristics of this cool-climate region with particular emphasis on varietal flavours, structure and balance. The sub-regional variation between each of our sites throughout the valley allows the winery to successfully produce a diverse range of wines. When a grape variety performs exceptionally well throughout a season, a selection of the most outstanding parcels are released under our reserve label.

Through consistently producing a vast range of different wines, all with hallmark elegance, quality and distinction, Yering Station has built a reputation as one of the finest producers in the Yarra Valley and Australia.
