Yabby Lake Vineyard was established by the Kirby family in 1998, in Tuerong, which is located in the northern part of the Mornington Peninsula. Over the past decade, Yabby Lake has built a reputation for single vineyard Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of great purity and character.
Led by the highly regarded winemaker Tom Carson, Yabby Lake's philosophy is to craft wines that speak of their site and their season in which they were grown. Yabby Lake believe it’s this attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression.
WINEMAKING: The fruit was hand harvested and pressed in small batches before it was left to settle overnight. French oak barrels (500 litre puncheons) were used for fermentation (no malolatic). All wild ferments. The wine was aged on yeast lees for 8 months, and bottled in September 2017.
TASTING NOTE: Bright intense pale straw colour. Lifted aromas of clean citrus notes, stone fruit and a subtle hint of spicy French oak. A tightly focused palate, with lovely balance and a long, complex finish.
