Yeringberg Shiraz 2018

SKU
YBSH201811 UCAU
Shiraz 97%, Viognier 3%. The depth and character of the fruit that our Shiraz vineyard is now producing is a delight to see. Subtle, savoury and deep set, the 2018 Shiraz offers aromas of blueberry, black pepper and dark cherry, building weight and presence as it unfurls, with complex notes of bay, thyme, salumi and liquorice. At the same time, there’s a freshness that wraps itself around the core of deep fruit, giving real lift and vibrancy to the perfume. The palate is immediately bright and energetic, with weight and richness too, savoury, subtle yet deeply concentrated, tightly wound and finely structured. Tasted over a couple of weeks, this is a wine that just keeps on evolving, so while it’s wonderful now, we’re equally confident it’ll provide drinking pleasure for many years to come.

Critic Scores & reviews

    ""Such an elegantly spicy style of cooler-climate shiraz, this has aromas of fine white pepper and hard brown spices, across red plums, raspberries and blackcurrants. The palate is so fresh, long and fine with a really elegant, silky feel and such seamless length. Red plums and blueberries, as well as some darker fruit. Fresh finish. Try from 2023.""

    ""Highly perfumed, exotic notes of cracked pepper and spice, red and black fruit, and grilled meat. It’s medium-bodied, svelte and juicy, subtle kind of wine, but no shortage of flavour in the spice and mixed berries kind of thing. Tannin is fine with an emery board quality, perfume of jasmine and stone fruit carries the finish. Stylish. Better with a few more years in bottle, I’d say.""

    ""Appealing ruby-red in colour, this is true cool-climate shiraz. Lovers of big mutha, warm-climate shiraz should look away. The nose has red berry, light peppercorn, earth, leafy and floral top notes; lifted, savoury and fresh. In the mouth, it's medium-bodied with good intensity of flavour and a fine tannin backbone""

Locations

Australia

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.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Victoria

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.

Yarra Valley

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.
