The de Pury family, vignerons and winemakers at Yeringberg since 1863, produce single-vineyard, estate wines from grapes grown on the slopes overlooking the Yarra River floodplain. Yeringberg’s 2015 Chardonnay was named one of the “100 Best Wines of the Year” by Wine & Spirits Magazine in 2017, and the critical accolades continue year after year for this legendary Australian producer.Visit Website
Yeringberg handcrafts serious wines, designed to mature gracefully with time in the bottle, yet always enjoyable when young. The wines are carefully vinted with qualities capable of developing into rich, elegant, mature wines. The reds especially have the structure and balance to ensure longevity and the white wines from supreme vintages live years longer than most Australian whites.
The winemaking process is as simple as possible, resulting in natural rather than over-worked wines. Marsanne, Roussanne, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and the Cabernet family of wines are each handled differently to enhance purity of fruit flavors and “terroir” influence, but all complete their maturation in French oak barrels in the original underground cellars. Marsanne and Roussanne go into older barrels to produce an unoaked style, while a percentage of new French oak barrels among the old are used each year for all the other young wines.
The Yeringberg vineyard is 5 acres, and only estate grown fruit is used for their wines. With the future of the estate in mind, the de Pury family makes every effort to maintain their land, utilizing green initiatives, including sheep grazing and the planting of trees to protect native species, to keep the farm in balance with its environment. At harvest, the grapes are hand-picked and sorted prior to crushing, then fermented with care to maintain the quality derived from this exceptional site.
