Colour: Burmese ruby.
Nose: Black cherry fruit complemented with savoury spices. Earthy and brooding yet complex and pretty.
Palate: Intense red and black fruit. Rich and powerful yet elegant and graceful. Fine grain tannins provide texture and support, finishing with incredible length. It will gain greater complexity as it slowly ages.
Cellar: Now - 2030.
Viticulture: 2015 was an exceptional year. A classic Yarra Valley growing season: a wet spring followed by moderate daily temperatures and cool nights. Perfectly balanced vines allowed the grapes to ripen in optimal conditions. In these reserve years, the pristine fruit flavours combined with intensity and power give the wine balance and longevity. 100% whole berries, cold soaked 4 days, 1.5-5.0 tonne open top fermenters.

Wine Companion (2015 Vintage) says
For the stat geeks - fruit off four sites, hand-picked, de-stemmed with whole berries into small open top fermenters, aged in French oak puncheons 35% new for 11 months. For the flavour junkies, this is a beautifully subtle and detailed wine. Finesse and elegance it's drivers with silky fine tannins neatly threaded through the barely medium-bodied palate, refreshing acidity and a delicate mix of spiced cherries.
Drink by 2025
Mike Bennie (2015 Vintage) says
Elegant Pinot without a hair out of place. Glides in the palate, delivers potent fragrance, fine tannins tighten the wine up and a pool of cool acidity to close (amongst fruit, spice, oak) suggests ‘hold onto me for a while’. Clove and twiggy woodiness woven through red cherry and cranberry fruit characters. Inward concentration. A whiff of old campfire and a slate-like mineral vein. Reminds me in a way of Faiveley’s vibe. Anyway, this wine goes to show Yering Station has the goods.
2017 - 2030
Huon Hooke (2015 Vintage) says
Medium red colour with a purple tinge. The bouquet is floral and pleasant in a pot-pourri-like way, with some metallic and ironstone notes. Complex and compelling. There is a slight alcohol or VA (volatile acidity) lift in the mid-palate, but it's not a concern. The wine is concentrated, powerful and profound, and deserves to be cellared before drinking. It will certainly live long. The concentration and depth of sweet, ripe cherry fruit is very impressive. An outstanding Pinot.
2020 - 2032
Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage) says
Pale ruby purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Reserve offers red currants and underbrush on the nose with suggestions of lavender and dried herbs, plus a touch of soil. Soft with nice backbone, there's good depth and length on the palate.
2016 - 2021
James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
This is a beautifully subtle and detailed wine. Finesse and elegance are its drivers, with silky fine tannins neatly threaded through the barely medium-bodied palate, plus refreshing acidity and a delicate mix of spiced cherries.
