Yeringberg Pinot Noir 2019


Adding to cart… The item has been added

The 2019 Pinot Noir combines the kind of ripeness and generosity, delicacy and finesse that characterise great Pinot Noir. Initially reserved, the nose offers notes of sun-kissed strawberry, blood plum and rose petal, together with exotic hints of musk and nutmeg. The palate has a supple richness, with a depth of flavour built on both the character of the vintage and the age of the vines. Juicy strawberry fruit, plum and rhubarb flavours are underpinned by an almost luxuriant structure that’s defined by savoury mushroom and spicy oak notes, all of which come together beautifully on the deeply perfumed finish. This is a wine to enjoy now and will build complexity with 8-10 years in the bottle. – Sandra de Pury

This has aromas of fresh red cherries and raspberries, as well as a gently spicy and modern reductive edge that holds freshness and complexity. The palate is a sleek and fine-boned affair with bright strawberries and red cherries, set in plush, supple tannins that carry fresh red and darker-cherry flavours long. Impressive. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 94 points. Nick Stock, December 2021

From vines planted 1969-1974. 35% new oak. No fining or filtration. Autumnal, savoury and kind of amarolaced. I’m thinking poached strawberry, cherry, spice and cedar, with a distinct sappy/sour blood orange tang, fine-grained but firm tannin, and a fresh red-fruited finish of good length. Plenty of character. I like it. 93 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front November 2021

There's more volume this vintage, yet it still retains the Yeringberg touch of elegance. Ripe plums and cherries, all sweet and tangy with blood orange, bitter herbs and woodsy spices. Fuller bodied with ripe tannins and good drinking now. 93 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022
