Let’s Taste – Yeringberg Chardonnay 2004

A bottle from the cellar, in celebration for my beloved Western Bulldogs being in the Grand Final (recorded before the game), my bottle of the Yeringberg Chardonnay 2004. As mentioned on this and other episodes, Guill de Pury from Yeringberg was my very special guest on Episode 100 of The Vincast wine podcast. Unfortunately this bottle had experienced premature oxidation (cork fault that lets air into the bottle and rapidly increases the ageing), so it wasn’t in the best shape. But I hope to taste some more recent releases of Yeringberg here very soon!

Please visit the Yeringberg website to find out more about this historic producer, and follow me on social media!

The Vincast Episode 100 – Guill de Pury from Yeringberg Wines

In the latter half of the 19th Century, there were a number of very important arrivals into the Yarra Valley region, less than 100km east of Melbourne, who happened to be Swiss. These were important viticultural who made a name for Australian wine in Paris and London, winning hearts, palates and medals. One of these pioneering Swiss families was the de Purys, who established Yeringberg in the area now known as Coldstream. My guest on this episode is Guill de Pury, the third-generation owner responsible for reviving the wine growing on the property at the end of the 1960s. He shared the important history of the family, the region, the farm and his own journey of (re)discovery.

Let’s Taste – Yeringberg Red & Pinot Noir 2004

Yeringberg was my epiphany producer; the 1997 Pinot Noir is the reason I continued working in the wine industry. Back when I worked at Domaine Chandon in the Yarra Valley, I went to Yeringberg’s Open Day to taste, and bought these two 2004 wines. I’ve relinquished them from my cellar and thought I’d share my impressions. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

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.
