Wine list

Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1

2016

Fruit power is the hallmark of this blend, dark berry fruits and some sage adding a background herbal lift. Christmas cake mixed spice and a whisper of oak; all in balance. Beautiful fruit, a bright acid drive and tannins that form a solid foundation for a long future. Brooding but not intimidating, always exciting to watch evolve.

Yarra Yering Pinot Noir

2019

Aroma & Bouquet: Lilac perfumed nose, cherry fruits with a pinch of aniseed spice.

Palate: Black cherry fruits dominate the palate and a pinch of Chinese five spice. A silky elegance combined with a defined tannin structure, both grape and oak tannin to produce a medium-bodied yet powerful style. A Pinot noir that will reward cellaring.

Yarra Yering Shiraz Touriga

2019

Aroma & Bouquet: Blackcurrant fruits, purple plums and a cured meat char.

Palate: The Shiraz brings an exotic floral fragrance coupled by a juicy expansive fruit palate and minimal tannin extraction. The Touriga naçional being naturally high in tannins brings structure and spice to the blend.

Yarra Yering Dry Red No.3

2018

Aroma: Fragrant lavender with mulberries and cardamom spices, some nettle and charcuterie complexity.

Palate: Leading with the powerful fruit and licorice spice of Touriga Naçional, the Tinta Cãobrings bright and fragrant blue fruit energy. Tinta Roriz brings a savoury depth to the palate to compliment the Tinta Amarela’s floral and bay leaf herbal lift. To tie everything together the finesse of Alvarelhão and the acidity of the Sousão tightens and drives the long palate.

Yarra Yering Light Red WIne

2020

Winemaking techniques used are to encourage an exotic floral fragrance coupled by a juicy expansive fruity palate coupled with a fine tannin framework. Highly aromatic with rose petal, blue violets and cherry fruits, the palate has a light touch, is soft and full of juicy plums, a faintest bramble grip from the use of stalks bringing some structure and drive to the finish.

Yarra Yering Dry White Wine No.1

2020

Aroma & Bouquet: Lime juice, green apple peel and a little white flowers.

Palate: Bright green apple crunch and lime citrus from the Semillon grapes, Chardonnay brings some of the stonefruit weight and a pillowy texture from maturation in neutral oak barrels. The bright lime acidity driving the palate length.

Yarra Yering Agincourt

2016

Agincourt Cabernet consistently exhibits classic cabernet characters of cassis and dark berry fruits, along with a unique leafy herbaceousness. The Malbec plays its part with inky robust plum and black cherry and ample tannins to provide beautifully balanced structure.

Yarra Yering Chardonnay

2019

Aroma & Bouquet: Oyster shell nose with grapefruit, pears and ginger. A faint impression of vanillan oak bringing a sweet perfume.

Palate: Finesse combine with pillowy fruit weight; this is a wine that is fine boned with citrus flavours dominating in its youth. A citrus energy drives the palate with a pithy interest and texture on the back palate. An extremely fine grained oak tannin framework lingers on the finish.

Yarra Yering Underhill Shiraz

2016

Perfumed cool climate Shiraz; deliciously medium bodied with a lick of aniseed spice. Bright blue plum fruits bring energy to the palate and some black plums a more traditional fruit concentration. As always from this block we see some cured meat and a smoke-char interest driving the back palate. A solid core of fruit, the oak is a faint seasoning that plays second fiddle to the fruit.


Yarra Yering Dry Red No.2

2016

A complex and layered wine; sweet and savoury all at once. The fragrance is melting pot of violets, plums, savoury spices and a whiff of bramble and five spice. Moderate in weight; the summer pudding fruits come in all colours dialling up the flavour interest. There is cigar box and cardamom spice lending intrigue. Firm yet fine tannins ably support the fruit and texture drive the palate. This one is hard to put in a box, there is so much to love.

Vineyard

The 70 acres of vines at Yarra Yering are grown without irrigation on a northerly slope at the foot of the Warramate hills. Good drainage, all day exposure to the sun, and enough elevation from the valley floor to avoid the spring frosts produces wines that are inherently balanced, precise and elegant.

The yield is low, 1-2 tons per acre, resulting in fruit with great intensity and concentration of flavour and with an abundance of natural acidity.

The rows of vines are planted three metres apart, but in-row vine spacings vary across the vineyard, depending on grape variety and suitability to soil type.

Hand-pruning is undertaken over winter by the vineyard staff, regardless of the weather in the Yarra Valley. As the vineyard has grown in size from the original 30 acre block to the current 70 acres, new varieties have been planted to supplement the traditional cabernet, pinot, shiraz, and chardonnay.

A steep west facing hillside purchased in the 90s was terraced and planted with Portuguese varieties to take advantage of the hot afternoon sun. An East facing slope below these varieties is planted to merlot, mouvedre and petit verdot.

Yarra Yering has not stood still, the endeavor to produce better wines is pursued constantly in the winery and vineyard, maintaining its status as one of the best in the Yarra Valley.
