97% Shiraz, 3% Viognier. Our 2017 Shiraz is another wine of elegance and restraint. Cool, savoury and spicy, the nose reveals delicate notes of blueberry, spices and violet, progressing to liquorice and black pepper as time in the glass adds depth and lift to the bouquet. The palate mirrors the experience –savoury, minerally and quietly brooding, the spicy, earthy blue fruits sit within a framework of serious but fine tannins that gradually soften to add breadth and plushness to the long, driven palate. Tasted over several days, it’s a wine of real presence - always elegant, svelte & sophisticated, it’s certainly not going to be rushed and will richly reward patient contemplation as it evolves over the next 7-10 years.
“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. In the riper years, the red wines have a velvety generosity of flavour which is rarely encountered, yet never lose varietal character, while the Yeringberg White takes students of history back to Yeringberg's fame in the nineteenth century.” - James Halliday

Opens with a whiff of neoprene reduction, before sashaying broad across blue fruit allusions, dried seaweed and clove. The tension lingers. A dollop of viognier (3%) in the meld.
