ABV: 13.5%
Closure: Stelvin

The de Pury family have been farming in the Yarra Valley since 1863. Once a famed vineyard in the 19th century, the demise of fine table wines saw production cease in 1921. Guill & Katherine de Pury decided to replant the vineyard in 1969, gradually starting to rebuild the reputation of this historic estate. Today it is helmed by Sandra de Pury, becoming the fourth-generation winemaker at Yeringberg, with her brother David who manages the vineyard. Produced from some of the oldest vines in the Yarra Valley, the low-yielding vines result in wines of great age-ability and finesse.

Other Reviews….
A blend of 58/14/14/9/5% cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc/merlot/petit verdot/malbec. Matured 20 months in French barriques (35% new). Bright crimson purple. From a great year, this is a beautifully fragrant and seductive Yeringberg with its aromas of blackcurrants, blueberries, cherry blossom, violets and just the right amount of oak-derived cedar and pencil-shaving scents. The epitome of medium bodied, it's elegant, discreet and persistent on the palate, even at this early juncture. Equally important, the fruit is perfectly framed by the wine's fine-grained and silky tannins and, as has been demonstrated on many occasions, this will mature slowly and gracefully.

An address crafting mid-weighted, savory wines with a strong track record of ageing. A ladle of oak is served over violets, graphite, tomato leaf, green beans, mint and juicy plummy fruit. The intention of cellar-worthiness for this Bordeaux blend is clear. The finish is a long currency of investment, best kept for at least a decade. Wines that grow in trajectory, complexity and poise with time. Best after 2028. Screw cap.

58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 14% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Vines planted 1969-2000. 35% new oak.
Red and blue fruit, blonde tobacco and cedar, honey baked ham, some floral and mint perfume. It’s medium-bodied, svelte and red fruited, with a savoury cedar and tobacco edge, fine grained tannin, again that vaguely honey/floral thing, with a strawberry and cocoa powder finish of excellent length. A discreet ‘claret’ style, and certain to reward with requisite bottle age.
