Yes we did visit the Yerring Estate. The Pinot was indeed special because of their unique method of blending the wine. Passed by the Redhill area....will try it the next time.
Would recommend a day or two in the mornington area if you do like golf, wine and food because its very available. And yes Lord Arran, I do believe the ones you have from Alsace and the german ones are better.Nothing beats the real stuff. Thats why the seasoned wine drinker will find the rieslings here a little too young and acidic(as compared to their sweeter german cousins).And I think with the exception of a few estates and certain varietals and years, its fair to say that many will find australian wine lacking in character compared to the other new world wines(california and new zealand).
