2015 Yering Station Chardonnay – Buy Now
92 Points- Campbell Mattinson, Winefront Website, February 2017
This won’t be released until March but it’s definitely one to place on your radar, price permitting. Exhibit A. It’s the positive archetype of modern Australian chardonnay. It’s at-ease with complex struck match notes; it’s run with pear, meal and stonefruit flavour; it shows toasty, spicy oak but not too much; there’s a grapefruit-like bitterness, void of shame or self-consciousness; its freshness makes for a mouthwatering style. It’s classy and elegant but mostly it’s delicious.

95 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Magazine, April/May 2017.
From low-cropping vineyards in the Lower and Upper Yarra, barrel-fermented, matured for 11 months in French oak. It is a carefully shaped wine, the emphasis on elegance and balance, length at Yarra Valley given. It is so pristine now it needs time to show its ultimate potential, but can’t be gainsaid now.

Yering Station’s Little Yering range offers excellent buying and drinking, more often than not.
This is fruit-forward and velvety and, as a result, slips down a treat. Ripe stonefruit, fennel, steel and red apple flavours run juicily through the palate. Its charms are open and obvious, in a good way. No great high notes but all positives regardless.

2015 Yering Station Pinot Noir – Due to be release last week of March
Campbell Mattinson, Winefront Website, February 2017
Found all over, is Yering Station Pinot Noir. What a workhorse of a pinot noir. Good go-to wine, it feels.Sappy pinot of ash-dusted tannins and slightly bitter oak profile, but on the whole, pretty high drinkability. It’s scented like red cherry, raspberry, rose petal pot pourri, green pepper corn and sage herbal character, touch of choc-nut oak. Satiny-texture, with, yeah, a sappy kind of tackiness to texture, not too untoward, but certainly a little application of the handbrake in finesse. The finish is a squirt of bitter orangey acidity that kind of sticks out too. Overall, no denying that supple, come hither feel that sort of is the take away message. Quite even keeled and a smooth operator. Reliable choice, again.

2005 Yarrabank Late Disgorged CuveeShop Now
95 Points- Huon Hooke,, November 2017
Full golden-yellow colour with a lovely expressive, mature, complex bouquet of buttered toast, roast hazelnut and toasted cashew. The palate is very tangy with lively acid, possibly heightened by a low dosage rate. The acidity is confronting, and needs food. However, the matured character is superb. It’s rich and very mouth-filling. An excellent mature Aussie sparkling wine. (8 years on lees)
