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.

Batches were on skins for 7-10 days.

Palate: The long, silky palate has a lovely elegance and velvety texture, with concentrated red fruit flavours and a finely poised finish.
