Yering Station

Yarra Valley, Victoria

yer.jpg

Yering Station was purchased by the Rathbone family in 1996 with 20 acres of established vineyard. Today the plantings have developed, establishing 5 separate Yarra Valley Vineyards totaling 275 acres of yielding vines. The impact of terroir - character deriving from the vineyard - upon the resulting wine offers a great point of comparison in the finished product.

The Yering Station estate vineyard claims the proud title of being first vineyard planted in Victoria. This site boasts the vines producing our acclaimed Reserve Pinot Noir. Lower elevation and moderate exposure provide an extended ripening period for this early budding variety. The uniform, fertile soil type enhances growth whilst cane-pruning and meticulously regulated crop levels (depending on the season) ensure flavour intensity. This slightly undulating site, coupled with carefully tailored clonal selection gives Yering Station estate fruit its distinctive 'terroir'.
