The principal characteristic of the Yarra Valley is its cool temperature in comparison to the rest of Australia. It is probably Australia’s best-known cool climate region which is ideal for producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The Yarra Valley has variable and long growing seasons, encouraging the expressive, distinctive varietal flavour and complex structure for which Yering Station is renowned. The mild, dry and at times humid summers are followed by a long cool autumn. Most of the annual rain falls during the winter and spring months. Frost rarely is a problem but can affect the lower vineyards from time to time.
As each year brings unpredictability and difference the vineyard team works around the clock with seasonal change and environmental conditions to ensure every vintage potential is optimised and that the fruit is a true expression of the season or vintage.
