About

In 1983 the CSIRO brought the first cuttings of Roussanne into this country. The de Pury family planted them alongside some pre-existing Marsanne and more than thirty years on, this tiny vineyard produces one of the country’s greatest examples of this classic Rhone-inspired white blend.

The wine is matured for around 8-9 months in old oak yet maintains amazing freshness and structure. It is complex and layered without ever being overbearing.

On the 2013 version, Campbell Mattinson commented that “despite its cutting length, boasts a mellifluous softness.” and every day it spends in bottle, it just looks better and better.

The amount of this wine made every year is tiny, in the case of the 2013 a mere 50 dozen were produced. Given the quality of the producer, the vintage and the reputation and scarcity of this wine, it will not be around for long.

What It Tastes Like

“Yeringberg continues to get this blend right. It’s remarkably good drinking, both young though (more especially_ with a few years of bottle age under its belt. This release tastes of peach, honeysuckle and lime and despite its cutting length, boasts a mellifluous softness.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
