Let’s Taste – Yeringberg 2005

Yeringberg is one of the most historic viticultural sites in the Yarra Valley, and is also one of the oldest family owned wineries in Australia. The de Pury family have been in this part of Victoria since the 1860s, and have an incredible connection with their land, farming a number of different agricultural products. They make a number of outstanding wines, and the Yeringberg sits at the top. I opened the 2005 vintage from my cellar and shared my impressions, let me know what you think in the comments below.

Let’s Taste – My Granny’s Cellar!!

Last September my amazing Grandmother passed away at the incredible age of 89 (vintage 1927). As my family went through the emotional process of organising and cleaning her house of 40 years, I discovered a number of bottles of wine in the cupboard under the stairs. With permission from my family I opened some of these bottles on this video, and the results were quite surprising.

Let’s Taste – Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 1998

I opened my last bottle of Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Cabernet Merlot 1998, and showed how best to open an older wine that may have a more fragile cork, in a very gentle way.
