I’m a big fan of the wines of Yarra Yering, especially since Sarah Crowe began weaving her magic as winemaker in 2013. Sarah was recognised for her excellence when she became the first woman to win the prestigious James Halliday Winemaker of the Year award in 2017.
“Yarra Yering wines have always been very good, but under the current management, they have hit new heights. Sarah Crowe is an outstanding winemaker…. Without any fanfare (she) puts out a bevy of fabulous wines year after year.”
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, June 2019.
"A small bottling of the original pinot noir vines planted in 1969. Fully destemmed with some stalks added back to the 600kg fermenters. Matured 10 months in French oak, 40% new. A medium-deep crimson purple. Focussed with strawberries and other red fruits, along with a little spice from the well-handled oak. On the palate this has real power and density, with a core of sweet, darker fruits and savoury, ripe and long tannins. A serious wine built for the long haul."
