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.
Flavour, creamy nougat richness, stonefruit, green banana and spice, but with a firm cut of grapefruity acidity. It’s a bold wine, though it’s not loose, and doesn’t rely on struck match stuff, more delivers an appealing hit of traditional Chardonnay goodness. Has something of a chalky feel, but smoothness and gloss too, with toast and biscuit spice on a fresh finish. It drinks very well now, and is likely at its best over the next couple of years.
