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.

Critic Scores & reviews
"The Yeringberg is generally my benchmark wine and CM has done a superb job with the 2013 note – resonance for me is ‘complexity comes pre-prepared’. Right on. That’s nail on head. So much in the wine so early. Shiraz is the awkward cousin, in some respects, and though can be sublime in its essence of cool climate, spicy, medium weight feel, it can also sometimes be underpowered. It’s a curious release/place this wine is in right now. Perfume is glorious, a true perfume that wafts with sweet fruit, clove and cardamom spice, faint briary notes, light mahogany. The palate however is strict, opposite to the vivacity of the perfume, and though sees good architecture from ribbons of fine tannin, reveals little aside a barely-there succulence of faint berry fruit meshed to lean twiggy oak flavour. The finish is grippy, and a touch coarse, then has a light lemony zing. Time mellows the wine, and there’s potential for a wine of beauty in future, but it’s in an awkward phase right now."

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.
The Yarra Valley is a wine region known for producing outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region has become a leading wine tourism destination, popular for weekend trips as it is located only an hour’s drive northeast of Melbourne.
The cool climate region has some of the oldest soils in the world, and produces terrific Chardonnays in the leaner, acid-driven style. Long gone are the days of excessively oaked and oily Chardonnays. Superb Pinot Noir is cultivated with tremendous results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and even Sparkling wines of premium quality are also worth seeking out.
Yarra Valley is the oldest wine region in Victoria with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Reg Egan founded the iconic Wantirna Estate in 1963, followed by Dr Bailey Carrodus in 1969 who founded equally lauded Yarra Yering in the foot of the Warramate Hills. Nowadays a fleet of new world wine makers and growers are making sure Yarra Valley stays at the forefront of Victorian wine production. Key wineries to look out for are Mayer, William Downie and Macforbes.
The region in 2009 suffered in the Black Saturday fires, with an estimated 25% of all production was impacted.

About the brand Yeringberg
Yeringberg’s status as a pioneer of the Yarra Valley is indisputable. It was one of the first wineries established in the region, was one of the last to stop making wine in the Yarra Valley when wine production ground to a halt in 1921 and was once again one of the first to revive its operations in 1969 when Australian-made wine came back into favour.
Third-generation winemaker, Guill de Pury, and his daughter Sandra focus on small-batch, handcrafted wines that reflect the history and charm of Yeringberg. The family celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2013 with plans to be making classic Yarra Valley wines for many more years to come.
