"In the Yering Station vineyard we liken cool climate wine growing to an old world chef taking three days to cook a traditional meal on low heat. While the same dish cooked over four hours will still be good, it will lack the depth and layers of flavour and colour that only the slow method will provide".
The Yarra Valley has variable and long growing seasons, encouraging expressive and distinctive varietal flavour and complex structure. Viticultural practises at Yering Station consider old world techniques, and apply Australian innovation relevant to the unique environmental conditions.
Vine balance, varietal flavour integrity and structure are key aims in the Yering Station vineyard. Crop levels are meticulously monitored to ensure that optimal balance between yield and quality is maintained each year. For the most part our vines are 'dry grown' with manual irrigation applied sparingly when required to improve vine uniformity and consistency, imperative to growing quality fruit.
