This is a blend of two winemaking talents: Matt Harrop of Shadowfax and Tom Carson of Yering Station. Each made a pinot from two Yarra Valley vineyards and those wines were blended at Yering Station. It's a surprisingly seamless, spicy pinot that comes into its own at the table.
CAMPBELL MATTINSON, WINEFRONT MAGAZINE
This is the kind of great-drinking wine that some folks don't seem to think exists in Australia. What rubbish. It's not overblown or over-sown or over-crowed, it's just pure and soft and varietal, the autumnal, mulch-like savouriness the perfect foil to blackened, cherried, soured fruit ripeness. The finish is green-edged, but in pinot that's often an attractive trait - and an ageworthy one. Drink: 2006-2011. 89 points.
