Region Yarra Valley

Yarra Valley The Yarra Valley was first planted by the Ryrie brothers who explored a way through the Snowy Mountains to the Yarra Valley, planting grapes in 1838 just three years after the foundation of Melbourne. A wine industry (developed by Swiss Settlers particularly Hubert de Castella and Baron Guillaume de Pury in the 1850s) thrived during the gold rush era and heyday of the 19th century. However, the end of the gold rush brought the wine industry into decline and it was not until the 1970’s that the modern wine industry started up again. The region is probably Australia’s best-known cool-climate area, yet it is really a patchwork of meso-climates. This varied topography creates an incredible set of variables. Vineyards are planted on elevations of 50 to 400m on varying aspects and management programmes. The more exposed sites are subject to severe spring frosts and winds. Overall, the area experiences a relatively high rainfall pattern and is known for its temperature extremes

Overall, the area experiences a relatively high rainfall pattern and is known for its temperature extremes during ripening. Site selection is crucial, with the best vineyards often located where the original vines were once planted, generally on sandy clay loams and gravels. The Yarra Valley is well known for high quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Blends with Shiraz increasingly garnering attention. Sparkling wine production is also extremely important, with many of Australia’s finest examples produced in the region.

Winery YERING STATION

Langton’s Selections Yering Station Reserve Pinot Noir Yering Station was the first vineyard in Victoria, planted in 1838 by William Ryrie. Paul de Castella, a Swiss immigrant who enjoyed considerable notoriety for his wines, acquired it in 1850. He expanded the vineyard using cuttings from Chateau Lafite, which survived the arduous passage to Australia by being packed in moss. Paul de Castella’s brother-in-law, a sea captain, brought the latest winemaking equipment back from the Bordeaux exhibition of 1859. Yering Station’s wines attracted considerable international and local interest, but the end of a strong economic cycle – underpinned by gold and wool and the fashion of the time – led to a depressed market for wine. By the early 1920s the entire Yarra Valley had lost its fledgling wine industry, most of the land being returned to general agricultural use. Yering Station primarily farmed cattle until 1988 when a 20 acre vineyard was planted. In 1996 the current owners

By the early 1920s the entire Yarra Valley had lost its fledgling wine industry, most of the land being returned to general agricultural use. Yering Station primarily farmed cattle until 1988 when a 20 acre vineyard was planted. In 1996 the current owners, the Rathbone family, acquired Yering Station and immediately expanded The Estate vineyard to 120 acres. Other vineyard sites have also been leased or acquired taking total vineyard holdings to 252 acres. The overall scale of this wine venture is verging on Napa Valley proportions with the whole vertically integrated wine dream on one site. Yering Station entered a partnership with Champagne Devaux and together they make Yarrabank, a sparkling wine based on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. However it is Yering Station’s Reserve wines that make this producer so interesting. The Reserve Pinot Noir is a fabulous wine. Typical Burgundian wine making practices are employed including cold soak pre-fermentation maceration, partial barrel fermentation and pigeage. The wines are matured in a combination of new and 1 year old French oak. The Reserve Pinot Noir does not have any track record on the secondary market but clearly shows a strong commitment to quality and regional expression. The Reserve Shiraz Viognier is also an outstanding example of this very erratic genre. The Reserve Chardonnay – barrel fermented and seasoned in 60% new and 1 and 2 year old French oak – is a beautiful creamy minerally style. Yering Station makes a multitude of varietals. The Estate Range is excellent. The team at Yering Station are leading lights of the contemporary Australian fine wine scene. The Reserve wines are all well received on the secondary wine market.
