Made in the Traditional Method, Yarrabank is now recognised as one of Australia’s top sparkling wines.
First created in 1993, the venture reflects the committed vision of Champagne Devaux president Laurent Gillet, to produce a benchmark Australian sparkling wine. Combining centuries old tradition from Champagne with a contemporary approach to winemaking, Yarrabank is renowned for pushing the boundaries of Australian sparkling wine production. Having consistently received accolades since its first vintage, Yarrabank has firmly established itself as one of Australia’s finest sparkling wines.
“Wine quality has consistently been outstanding, frequently with an unmatched finesse and delicacy.” – James Halliday
There is true dedication and exchange between the wineries when producing the Yarrabank wines, with winemakers each year traveling from Devaux to Australia to assist in the production process. Yering Station winemakers travel to Champagne annually to experience first-hand the structure of grapes needed to make great sparkling wine.
The exclusive use of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes hand picked with the perfect balance of ripeness and acidity ensures that the Yarrabank style is maintained. Chardonnay fruit gives lightness, elegance and finesse whilst the Pinot Noir enhances palate length and mouthfeel.
Our cool climate vineyards in the Upper Yarra Valley offer differing soils and exposure to optimise the diverse characters of the two grape varieties. This gives our winemakers a fantastic range of base wine component to produce complex and balanced sparkling wine.
