Not to be confused with nearby Yering Station, Yering Farm is a small winery carved out of what used to be a fruit farm, when Alan Johns asked his father to give him five acres of the estate's 200 to turn into a winery.
The entry-level Farmyard series is a very approachable range, featuring playful labels of colourful animals. It is fruit forward, easy drinking wine, the kind you can crack at a barbecue and drink way too much of. The next step up is the Yering Farm Estate series, and a $5 tasting at Yering Farm includes a taste of the George cabernet sauvignon, named after Alan's father. The chardonnay and late harvest dessert wine are particular standouts at Yering Farm.
But this being a former fruit farm, fruit is still a big part of what Yering Farm does. Yering offers what Johns calls 'syder', or pink lady apple cider. It's crisp, perfectly balanced between sweet and tart, and tastes just like biting into a perfectly ripe pink lady apple.
