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.
From vines planted 1969-1974. Autumnal, savoury and kind of amaro-laced. I’m thinking poached strawberry, cherry, spice and cedar, with a distinct sappy/sour blood orange tang, fine-grained but firm tannin, and a fresh red-fruited finish of good length. Plenty of character. I like it. Tasted: Nov 2021; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $95; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2022-2029; Rated: 93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
There's more volume this vintage, yet it still retains the Yeringberg touch of elegance. Ripe plums and cherries, all sweet and tangy with blood orange, bitter herbs and woodsy spices. Fuller bodied with ripe tannins and good drinking now. Drink to: 2038; Price: $95.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2021; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 93 Points; Jane Faulkner; James Halliday Wine Companion
