Wine tasting notes

Pale straw in colour with green hues. Lovely white peach & pear fruit aromas, creamy 'barrel ferment' & cashew nut supported by a citrus/mineral freshness. The palate is an intoxicating mix of stone fruit purity with an edgy flintiness. Vanillin oak spice richness finishing with a crisp, clean acid tail.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010)93 pts

Yarra Valley chardonnay that spent some time in French oak is very tempting at this price, its varietal authenticity never in doubt. Has a year or two in front of it.

Wine Front (2010)93 pts

A new range from Yering Station which, naturally, will up (or re-position) the price of the Estate wine.Honeydew, white peach, a little almond and ginger spice oak. Good flavour, zesty acid cut, even flow and a persistent finish offering lime and spice as a farewell. Has an effortless appeal and built-in ease of drinking. Light flinty textural touches are at play too. Excellent value. Yum.

Tyson Stelzer (2010)92 pts

A brand new wine slotting between Yering's Little and it’s Estate Chardonnays. The focus here is on middle and Upper Yarra fruit, hand picked with one-fifth barrel fermented in new oak. The result is a finely crafted grapefruit, white peach and lemon blossom style with a touch of toasty oak on the finish.

Wine Business Monthly - "Yering's new tier, blending middle and Upper Yarra chardonnay to create a finely crafted grapefruit, white peach and lemon blossom style with a subtle touch of toasty oak. "

Vinification Notes

Grapes are sourced from the cool viticultural region of the Yarra Valley, north east of Melbourne. After destemming, the grapes are gently crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks for cooling and settling prior to fermentation in French oak barriques, 25% of which are new. There is no malolactic fermentation performed in order to retain the natural acidity formed in the cool climate ripened grapes, but the lees are stirred in barrel during its 11 months ageing. Bottling is with a light filtration and fining.
