Yabby Lake Syrah 2017

Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Syrah 2017

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Over the past decade Yabby Lake has built a reputation for producing some of the finest cool-climate wines made on the Mornington Peninsula. Led by the highly credentialed winemaker Tom Carson, Yabby Lake's philosophy is to craft wines that speak of their site and their season in which they were grown.

This 2017 Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Syrah is another beautifully perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style. The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth. Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for ten years.

"95 Points. Fermented in (open) oak fermenters. 10% whole bunches. 11 months in 500 litre French oak. Grown in sandy loam soils using PT23 and BVRC12 clones of shiraz. A wonderful wine. Polished, powerful, characterful and satisfying. It tastes of nuts, smoked herbs, berries red and black, graphite and a dry, almost savoury version of licorice straps. Full array of flavours and scents and bright with them too. Utterly seductive, and impressive. Tasted: Nov18 Alcohol: 14% Price: $36 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2019 - 2026+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

"The syrah handle is used mostly to define shiraz grown and crafted in a more cool-climate setting. This stylish and silky style bursts with fragrance wafting with a herbal/spicy floral note like sage and thyme to begin, then a sense of licorice and black pepper that adds a delicious complexity and intensity to the flavour profile. It’s rich without weightiness and has an engaging length. Really tasty. 4.5 Stars" - Tony Love, Herald Sun, 14 September 2018.

AROMA: A perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style.

PALATE: The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth.

VINIFICATION: The fruit was handpicked and gently de-stemmed into traditional oak open fermenters. A small portion of whole bunches (10%).

MATURATION: After 10-14 days on skins, the wine was pressed into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine remained in oak for 11 months and was racked once during maturation.

VINTAGE NOTES: The 2017 vintage is a classic in the making. A mild but windy spring led into a cool summer and extended autumn. The wines are classically proportioned and destined for a long life.

CELLARING POTENTIAL: Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for ten years.
