5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
Yeringberg releases radiate quality and history, still in production and family hands after a staggering 155 turns of the sun. Current custodian Sandra de Pury is a wine making legend, very humble considering her achievements. These are collectable, highly sought-after wines. What is staggering about Yeringberg year after year is their mastery across all varieties, from whites to reds. Even though their flagship wine is their Cabernet, there is a good argument that every wine from Yeringberg flies the flag as a benchmark for the Yarra Valley.
"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 (via Cellarhand)
