Yeringberg Shiraz 2012
Guill de Pury and daughter Sandra, with Guills wife Katherine in the background, make wines for the new millennium from the low-yielding vines re-established in the heart of what was one of the most famous (and infinitely larger) vineyards of the 19th century. In the riper years, the red wines have a velvety generosity of flavour rarely encountered, while never losing varietal character; the long-lived Marsanne Roussanne takes students of history back to Yeringbergs fame in the 19th century.

240 dozen. 3% viognier. 12.5% alcohol. Sealed with a screwcap. Yarra Valley shiraz from one of the region’s prime gems.
Outstanding cool climate shiraz. Perfumed, peppery, slipped with bacon and whole bunch notes, plush with cherry-plum fruit. It’s all life and spice but, despite it’s low alcohol, there’s more than enough fruit flavour to satisfy. Nutty/herbal tannin adds to the impression of exotica.
