Yeringberg Yeringberg. Classic Yarra Valley blend, producer, wine. This 2013 release is a blend of cabernet sauvignon (65%), cabernet franc (12%), merlot (10%), malbec (7%), and petit verdot (6%). The price is RRP rather than cellar door. Crushed dry tobacco. There’s an assortment of berried fruits here but the crush of smoky leaf, almost into cigar box territory, is as intoxicating as it is uplifting. It’s like an old school stamp of class; a ‘this is how it’s done’ moment. Fresh new oak plays a role here too but it’s a fully integrated one; a firm hand into a clean, tight-fitting glove. There is no need to worry on this one; it will age superbly. Complexity comes pre-prepared. Rated : 96 Points. Alcohol : 13.5% Price : $98 Drink : 2021 - 2036. Campbell Mattinson.

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley
Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
