Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 season, with long warm summer days and cool nights, produced fruit with ideal ripeness and sugar balance.

Lifted strawberry and red cherry fruit with gamey notes. Complimented with subtle vanillin oak. Good structure and persistence with great depth of fruit and savory notes on the finish. This wine has been fermented in open fermenters with regular plunging. Part fermentation in aged French oak barrels was also included in the winemaking process.

My Notes:

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.
