2019 Yeringberg Pinot Noir
From vines planted 1969-1974. 35% new oak. No fining or filtration. I always find it pretty interesting that so many people clamor for Yeringberg and Mount Mary Pinot Noir, when it’s the Cabernet wines that are the superstars. Still, good news in a way, for sensible people.
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. Drink 2022 - 2029.

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 by 2038.
