- Pinot Noir
Yering Station Little Yering Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia
Aromas of strawberry and red cherry fruit with gamey notes, complemented with subtle vanillin oak. The palate is well structured and persistent with great depth of fruit and savouriness on the finish.
For crisp, elegant wines, this is the Australian winery to taste.
When vines were first planted by the Scottish-born Ryrie brothers in 1838, the land was named ‘Yering’ by the Aboriginal community and became the first vineyard in the state of Victoria. The brothers acquired 43,000 acres and planted two grape varieties – black cluster and sweet water. They also used the land to house their cattle farm.
A balance between an upfront fruit style and lean acidity means that they shine with any food. Chief Winemaker, Willy Lunn has more than 25 years’ extensive and intimate cool climate winemaking experience both in Australia and overseas and has been at Yering Station since July 2008.
Committed to dynamic, experimental and progressive winemaking, Willy is setting the bar for cool climate Australian wine very high.
