An incredible vintage for Yeringberg.

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.  

Sandra and David, brother and sister, and current custodians of this place are dynamic. Their attention to detail setting them apart and allowing them to speak a romantic story of not ‘changing’ anything while, really, they have analysed every miniature to extract all potential out of this magnificent property. Never, though, has any tweak ever infringed upon the unique and special ‘Yeringberg’ character. You could argue that character has actually been enhanced, the attention to detail leaving the wines ever more transparent and alive and with that showing the farm in all it’s glory in your glass. Only Yalumba and Tyrell’s comes to mind that can boast similar.

2021 is, as you would be aware by now, is an incredible vintage in this part of the world. And, with it comes a return of Shiraz; the wine wasn’t made in 2020 with Sandra making the tough call to not bottle the wine due to the cool conditions that saw Rhone varieties in the Yarra struggle to get to full ripeness. We at CellarHand are excited to have it back in the mix as we believe Shiraz to have been the equal to the eponymous ‘Yeringberg’ in recent times. Which is saying something given the pedigree of the Cabernet blend. 

We are extremely proud to offer these wines to you today. – Sam Hooper, CellarHand
