2021 Yeringberg Pinot Noir

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$105. 00
$1260.00 Dozen
ABV: 13%
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….
Made from MV6 and an old clone from Great Western planted between 1969 and ’74. Crushed and destemmed with eight to 10 days on skins, 45% new oak. Bright crimson. Aromatically, I can't recall a prettier Yeringberg pinot. It's got delicate new season cherries, strawberries, rose petals and a little nutmeg spice. Gentle and sweetly fruited on entry, it's also earthy and structured with fine yet powerful tannins. Finishes long and with a touch of spice. This is destined to age well.

I've had wonderful experiences with this pinot in the past. Mid-weighted, yet of a darker cherry, danker brood. Sarsaparilla and damson, with hints of Chinese medicine cabinet. An exceptionally well wrought tannic kit, sinuous and long-limbed, auguring for a solid future. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Vines planted 1969-1974 to MV6 and and old clone from Great Western. 45% new oak.
Cherry, strawberry and rhubarb pie, dried roses, toasty spicy oak. It’s medium-bodied, has some savoury tobacco and toasted spice, red fruits, a light grainy grip to tannin, balanced acidity, and a finish of very good length. It feels young and a little bit chewy as at now, though I reckon it’s going to roll out and evolve beautifully. Certainly it’s one of the best Yeringberg Pinots I’ve tasted.
