“Yarra Valley pioneers, the de Pury family are renowned for wines of finesse and elegance that epitomise the finest the region can produce. Produced from some of the oldest vines in the valley, these are long-lived wines made in tiny quantities. Yeringberg makes wines from the low-yielding vines re-established on the heart of what was one of the most famous vineyards of the nineteenth century." James Halliday
"Hand-picked, 30% whole-bunch pressed, 70% crushed and destemmed, 70% wild-fermented, 35% mlf, matured for 11 months in barrel. Rich, round and supple. Strikingly different to the Mornington Peninsula styles coming ex '17." 95pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
"Excellent line and length and with more than a little character too. Passionfruit, stonefruit and pear flavours come lightly kissed with cedarwood oak. The fruit here is ripe, bright and vigorous; there’s a softness to the texture but not at the expense of either cut or thrust; the finish is more than satisfying." 94pts - Campbell Mattinson - WineFront
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!
