Description

Introducing the new 2016 Yering Station Pinot Noir

"Lush, velvety, sensual and verging on exotic, on the nose, this is a profoundly impressive wine with perfectly judged oak and wild cherry notes from start to finish. This is a grand wine with a very fair price and I expect it to impress fans of global Pinot on account of its authentic tannic grip and refreshing acidity."

Get a smell of this. This draws you straight in, the nose so exquisitely turned out, the palate following straight on, the finish letting no one down. Undergrowth, spice notes, cherries, plums, folds of satin, wafts of wood smoke. Oak certainly contributes here but the fruit has its back. One highly seductive pinot noir.
