Yeringberg Shiraz 2013
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. James Halliday.
Perhaps not surprisingly given our early experience with the variety in the 1970s, Shiraz has once again found a happy home in our vineyard. The 2013 vintage is a wine of depth, with lifted blue fruit, white pepper and intense aromatics. Elegant, and with a silky luxuriousness, the nose leads effortlessly onto the beautifully poised palate that delivers a wine of almost unexpected structure and focus. Savoury and sappy, yet generously fleshy, the mid-palate demands attention as it builds through the fine tannin core towards a long and expansive finish. A wine of structure and finesse for drinking now or over the next 10+ years. – Sandra de Pury
