About The Wine

Yeringberg is one of the great family-owned estates of the Yarra Valley. The heritage and history that this site holds for the de Pury family stretches back more than 100 years, theirs is one of the great wine/farming stories of the region.

Their Cabernet blend is their most iconic wine, a wine that sits well and truly amongst the Yarra Valley's greats. A refined, mid-weight blend of all five Bordeaux red varieties, grown side-by-side, laden with fully integrated luscious new French oak, this is an elegant Cabernet belnd of the highest order.

Whether you drink it now or in several decades time, this is a wine you will remember.

About Yeringberg

There are few wineries in the Yarra Valley with the prestigious history of Yeringberg. The de Pury family were pioneers of the region, having one of the first vineyards in the region over 100 years ago.

The original vineyard was ripped out when the damand for Australian wine slowed to a trickle, however the site was replanted in the 1970s and is one of the great sites of the modern Yarra.

In James Halliday's opinion, "...(Yeringberg) are renowned for wines of finesse and elegance that epitomise the finest the region can produce."

Additional Info

From The Producer

Cabernet Sauvignon 58%, Cabernet Franc 13%, Merlot 11%, Petit Verdot 10%, Malbec 8%. As always, our Bordeaux blend is a perfect example of the saying that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The 2018 vintage is a great example, seamlessly combining depth and power with purity, elegance and finesse. An imposing nose of cassis, violets, plum and roasted peppers, with aromas of graphite, cigar box, cedar and bay – everything in place, well controlled, perfectly proportioned. The palate, powerful this vintage, opens in typically generous and fleshy style, with ripe black fruits, plummy Merlot plushness, and wonderful floral lift, while the ample, well-knit tannins provide savoury shape and structure. The palate finishes with effortless length and complexity. This is a wine to enjoy now, but as always, a wine that will reward cellaring over 15 to 20 years. – Sandra de Pury

The Wine Front

"Beautiful perfume of dried flowers, sweet tobacco and spice, blackcurrant and redcurrant, even almond meal. Dense and dark, with a smattering of dried herb, ripe cherry, crisp acidity, firm grainy tannin, and a distinctly ‘mineral’ and savoury finish of exemplary length. It’s a textbook example of superb Yarra Valley Cabernet." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
