2021 Yeringberg Marsanne Roussanne Yarra Valley

From: $68.00

2021 Yeringberg Marsanne Roussanne 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.

161 years young. That sums up Yeringberg perfectly. In the property’s 161st year, still in the same hands after all this time. 161 years as a wine grower puts them in rare air – only Yalumba comes to mind that can boast similar. However, at this ‘age’, to be at the peak of their powers now really is something else.

2021 will be one of the Yarra Valley vintages that we will still be talking about and enjoying the wines in 20 years’ time. Despite the very wet start during winter and spring, the growing season was delightfully uneventful. Flowering went well, and the ripening season after the January rain was long, dry and slow. This enabled Yeringberg to make wines with lower alcohols, and lovely ripe fruit and tannins.

Marsanne 62% & Roussanne 38%. From vines that are now approaching 50 years of age, this white blend continues its tradition of being an understated, complex and food-friendly wine. The nose is floral, with notes of jasmine, honeysuckle and orange blossom, while also having a subtle, savoury depth that speaks of pear skin, quince & beeswax. The palate offers more of the same, with a savoury, textured and powerful mouthfeel, that’s also lively and fresh, with a long and moreish finish. Enjoy now, and then watch this complex wine evolve over the next 8-10 years.
