2019 Yeringberg Shiraz Yarra Valley – Yeringberg makes wines from the low-yielding vines re-established on the heart of what was one of the most famous vineyards of the nineteenth century.
The wet spring and early summer set up the vines well for strong growth, and their careful vineyard management kept the threatened fungal diseases at bay. January and early February were hot, the autumn was more comfortable and the fruit ripened in a steady sequence. It is a vintage characterised by moderate yields, very healthy fruit and balanced wines, less opulent than 2018 but more forward than the 2017 wines.
Shiraz 97% and Viognier 3%. The 2019 Shiraz demonstrates again that this part of the Yarra can produce wonderfully spicy, elegant and age-worthy Shiraz. An energetic array of blueberry, white pepper, and bay leaf aromas leap from the glass, followed by Moroccan spice notes, liquorice and dark cherry. The palate has brightness and energy as well as a beguiling subtle, savoury depth. The fruit rides on the back of a powerful yet perfectly pitched tannic framework that provides wonderful drive, and delivers a wine of freshness and length. The wine evolves beautifully, settling into its frame and showing lovely poise, control and lingering complexity. A wine to enjoy for at least the next 10 years.
