Early historical records from the Yarra Valley indicate that the famous Frog family moved into the original Yering Station winery building back in 1859. The property's first 'Mr Frog' knew the cool, fresh environment, smell of grape skins and the constant access to some of Victoria's finest wines, made this the best address a 19th century amphibian could have. Today, legend has it that the fifth generation of the venerated Frog family still lives within the cooler crevices of the historical building, now home to cellar door.
The 2012 Mr Frog Pinot Noir is made from 100% Yarra Valley grapes, which have been fermented in open fermenters with regular plunging. Part fermentation in aged French oak barrels was also included in the winemaking process.
Ruby red. Ripe raspberry, blackberry and cherry characters with hints of savoury oak and spicy undertones. A silky palate with lovely, ripe fruit characters and fine tannins. Drink now or over the next 3 or 4 years."- Yering Station.
