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.
Acid (g/L): 5.1
Vinification: Handpicked, with each parcel handled separately in the winery (a total of 18 individual batches). Hand sorted and carefully destemmed (some whole bunches), each parcel went into traditional open fermenters. The wine underwent three days of cold soaking to ensure even and thorough extraction. Batches were on skins for 7-10 days.
Aroma: Characteristic perfumed, fragrant aromas highlighted by cherry and dark berry fruits complemented by a touch of spice and underlying French oak.
Palate: The long, silky palate has a lovely elegance and velvety texture, with concentrated red fruit flavours and a finely poised finish.
