About The Wine

The Yeringberg Viognier is a relative newcomer to this iconic estate.

The fruit is picked at two stages, the first giving freshness, spice and vital acidity, the second and later pick bringing the generosity of flavour and the weight to the wine. The fruit is fermented wild in barrel and the wine is left to rest for a couple of years prior to release.

All efforts are taken to build complexity with restraint into this often overblown variety, and the result is a rich, flavourful Viognier. It's a winning combination and one that Sandra de Pury is executing wonderfully.

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

Never a wine to hide its light under a bushel, Viognier really grabs your attention with its exotic, perfumed opulence and flamboyance. Ours is immediately inviting, full of rich apricot, mango and orange blossom aromas that are beautifully framed by delicate floral notes, and hints of spice, candied ginger and musk. The palate offers the same flavours with more intensity, and a delicate pithy acidity which keeps everything fresh and lively. A hedonistic wine of really wonderful volume, depth and generosity, it’s a wine of deliciously moreish joy. Enjoy now or over the next 5 years.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Few producers can match Yeringberg's viognier. Harmony is the aspiration, achieved by picking fruit over 8 days, so there's acidity, freshness and ripeness. There's also wild fermentation in barrel, no mlf and maturation in large-format, used oak. Ripe stone fruit, apricot and kernel, with ginger cream drizzled in honey. All tempered by lemon zest acidity and lime marmalade tang. There's richness here, without heaviness. A lovely viognier." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Hits all the Viognier markers. Jasmine, ginger, fresh apricot, lime and lemon. It’s bright, packed with varietal flavour, yet keeps itself trim and lively, succulence and perfume, heady spice and fine powdery texture, with a lychee and ginger laden finish of excellent length. All just so. Top shelf." - 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 02 8376 8775 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).
