Cracka Review

This offering from Yering Station shows attractive scents of abundant florals of the rose and violet spectrum, along with red cherries, dark plums and a hint of savouriness. The palate is medium-bodied and succulent, with spicy flavours, some sinewy tannins, and a rich, savoury-edged finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Bright, red cherry.

Nose: Savoury spices and mixed dried herbs. Elegant and pretty with a mixture of dark cherry fruit and savoury spices.

Palate: Lovely red berry fruit over-layered with dried herbs and subtle vanillan oak. Rich and mouthfilling, the middle palate extends to a long elegant finish.

Alc/vol: 13.0%

2013 Yering Station Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2015 Vintage) says
Pitch perfect, easy drinking, sappy-textured Pinot Noir of cheery cherry fruitness and subtle spice characters. It’s got great perfume, shows whiffs of sandalwood among the red fruits, while palate is ribbed with smudged tannins. No brainer for accessible, great drinking Pinot Noir.
James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Estate-grown, matured in French puncheons for 11 months. The highly fragrant bouquet already has bewitching spicy notes, part fruit, part oak-derived... Spicy notes continue to flow through the long palate; with time, the oak will diminish and fruit spice will increase.

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.

Huon Hooke (2015 Vintage) says
Bright, youthful, deepish red/purple colour, the bouquet subdued but clean and ripe, with what seems a pure-fruit styling (no obvious stemminess). The wine is ripe, clean and ample in the mouth, with good weight and grip. It really fills the mouth. Fresh, lively, taut, with a little firmness to close, and worth cellaring a little while.
2017 - 2029
Jeremy Oliver (2015 Vintage) says
A measured, supple and fine-grained Pinot whose sweet perfume of red cherries, raspberries and tight-grained cedar/vanilla oak is lifted by a fresh scent of red flowers. It’s long and elegant, with a mouth-filling presence of concentrated small berry/cherry fruit and fine, pliant tannins extending seamlessly towards a persistent and refreshing finish.
2023 - 2027
Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
Yering Station has grown up, returning to the heyday of its heady era of pinot noir glory with more delicacy of gorgeous rose petal, violet and cherry kernel perfume than ever. Whole bunch fermentation is masterfully controlled, slipping into a silky gown of fine, supple tannins.
