2020 Yeringberg Red Blend Yarra Valley Vic
Out of stock
The 47th vintage of a Yeringberg from our old vines. 2020 was
another fine vintage which reinforces our strong belief that the
Yarra Valley is perfectly suited for elegant Cabernet blends. This
year’s blend comprises Cabernet Sauvignon 61%, Cabernet
Franc 10%, Merlot 10%, Petit Verdot 10% and Malbec 9%.
Yeringberg is always a ‘field’ blend, ie the vineyard and the
vintage determine the final blend, not the winemaker.
The fruit is all hand-picked, and carefully sorted. The grapes are
destemmed and crushed, and fermented in small open top
tanks and hand plunged. Time on skins ranged from 12-15 days.
The wine was aged in French oak barriques for 18 months,
about 40% new. – Sandra de Pury
