Yering Station Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

Now with a $120 price tag, Reserve is really reaching for the stars. Track record, good vineyards, strong brand delivers that ability. Funny thing is, to be editorialising, when I think about Yering Station I think ‘cheap, good value pinot noir’ and ‘fancy, high end chardonnay and shiraz’. That’s likely just me. Mind’s eye stuff.

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.
