Yering Station Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
True Cabernet mint, with a subtle leafiness surrounding black currant and cedar spice on the nose. Black and red currant fruit provide the richness and power. The cedar spice and fine tannin structure complemented the mid palate, giving it elegance and grace.

The Scottish-born Ryrie brothers ventured into the Yarra Valley, acquiring 43,000 acres and naming the land ‘Yering’, its Aboriginal name. The brothers planted two grape varieties but primarily used the land for their cattle. During the early 1850s Paul de Castella took ownership of Yering Station and began developing from what remained primarily a cattle station into a landmark of winemaking in Victoria.
For years the Yering Station vineyard was one of the largest in the area, and visitors and holiday makers to the Yarra Valley increased. Wines from this new region began to make their mark on the world, with Yering taking out awards such as the Argus Gold Cup for best Victorian Vineyard in 1861 and a Grand Prix at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1889, where only fourteen awards were ever presented internationally.
