"Such beautiful texture. Such elegance. Such long, even-tempered flow. This release has Yeringberg in fine form, its heart of boysenberry and blackcurrant lifted by mint, cedar and sweet herb notes. I sat with this over the course of an evening and it impressed without barely trying; it just seems so unforced, so at peace with its place in the world. It’s beautiful company to keep." 94+pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
"Deep, bright red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet has mulberry, violet and cranberry aromas, quite multi-faceted, while the palate is bright and concentrated, with a lovely array of flavours. It's very complex and detailed with floral, spice and berry flavours galore. The tannins are fine and insistent and run the full length of the palate. This is sheer class." 96pts - Huon Hooke - The Real Review
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!
