If you are looking for wines that are a perfect blend of old-world charm and novel sophistication, you need to buy Yering Station Wines. Located in the Yarra Valley, Yering Station is the most ancient vineyard in Victoria. You can get to this sprawling & historic property in just about one hour from Melbourne.
The winery was first planted in 1838 and the beauty of the wines made here is that they are processed using techniques that have been in use for many decades; yet, the process combines innovative sophistications incorporated by expert wine-makers in the field.
This example is just that, innovative; 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier, but fermented to traditional methods and aged in trusted oak barrels. The 'magic' Viognier adds an element of opulent aromatic character to the nose and softens the palate, a technique used traditionally in the Cote Rotie area of the Northern Rhone.
