Yering Station Little Yering Pinot Noir
Sourced from younger vines, Little Yering Pinot Noir has been made to be as soft and juicy as possible with a lovely mix of elegant fruit, savoury spice and earthy undertones. This first thing you'll notice about this Australian Pinot Noir is the bright, red cherry colour that is a sign of the young vines. Pour a glass and take a sniff and you'll get a welcoming lifted perfume of violets and lavender which then gives way to a touch of spice. That spice is noticeable again when you taste it but not before you'll have noticed how soft and juicy this wine is. All that is intertwined with gamey, red and black cherry fruits and a subtle vanillin oak backdrop. It's really good and fantastic how Yering Vineyards have balanced juicy but elegant fruit with savoury spice and earthy undertones. There are beautifully supple tannins and velvet like finish. We usually steer clear of young vine Pinot Noir as they generally have little depth or quality, but this is very very different and uses that youth to deliver a unique wine. It's a real struggle to pair this wine too. It's definitely one you could easily drink without food but we think it should go really well with a big slab of smooth pate and french bread. Yum!
