Colour Dark Red
Nose "A distinctive nose of blueberry, cassis, olive and violets gives way to a cool, complex and restrained layer of cigar box, Christmas cake and fresh earth..." Sandra de Pury, Winemaker
Palate "in turn leading to a palate of almost surprising depth and structure. Seamlessly elegant, fresh and unassuming at first, the textbook mid-weight palate builds breadth and length as it sits in the glass, the structure evolving in perfect unison with the development of the old-vine fruit." Sandra de Pury, Winemaker
Food Pairing A classic Beef Bourguignon.

Yeringberg
Yeringberg’s status as a pioneer of the Yarra Valley is indisputable. It was one of the first winery’s established in the region, was one of the last to stop making wine in the Yarra Valley when wine production ground to a halt in 1921 and was once again one of the first to revive its operations in 1969 when Australian-made wine came back into favour.



Third-generation winemaker, Guill de Pury, and his daughter Sandra focus on small-batch, handcrafted wines that reflect the history and charm of Yeringberg. The family celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2013 with plans to be making classic Yarra Valley wines for many more years to come.
Yarra Valley
The Yarra Valley is a wine region known for producing outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region has become a leading wine tourism destination, popular for weekend trips as it is located only an hour’s drive north east of Melbourne.



The cool climate region has some of the oldest soils in the world, and produces terrific Chardonnays in the leaner, acid-driven style. Long gone are the days of excessively oaked and oily Chardonnays. Superb Pinot Noir is cultivated with tremendous results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and even Sparkling wines of premium quality are also worth seeking out.



Yarra Valley is the oldest wine region in Victoria with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Reg Egan founded the iconic Wantirna Estate in 1963, followed by Dr Bailey Carrodus in 1969 who founded equally lauded Yarra Yering in the foot of the Warramate Hills. Nowadays a fleet of new world wine makers and growers are making sure Yarra Valley stays at the forefront of Victorian wine production. Key wineries to look out for are Mayer, William Downie and Macforbes.



The region in 2009 suffered in the Black Saturday fires, with an estimated 25% of all production was impacted.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, I believe. There’s a lot to be said for using all the colours in the Bordeaux palette.
