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….
Fully crushed and destemmed before a combination of natural and inoculated ferments in barrel, some inoculated in tank, then racked to 35% new hogsheads with 35% mlf. A bright green gold. Aromas of ripe yellow peach, a soupçon of freshly churned butter and toasted almonds. While creamily textured and concentrated, there's also a fine bead of acidity running through the wine. Finishes with a gentle pithiness and can be drunk with confidence now and over the next four to six years.

A delicious mid-weighted chardonnay, brimming with a saline energy, drawing stone fruit allusions, cashew and a hint of nougatine long. A whiff of cinnamon stick oak, directs the fray. A wine with a prodigious track record in these parts. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. Screw cap.

35% malo, 35% new hogsheads. Two picks, two weeks apart.
Peach and lime, mint nougat, some white flowers, toasted cashew and spice. It’s smooth and glossy, a lick of buttery richness, but shot through with grapefruity acidity, a fine graininess to texture, some toasty oak, and full Chardonnay flavour on a finish of excellent length. A little old school, but so pleasing in that way.
