Outstanding quality wines can only be made from the finest fruit, judiciously harvested off closely managed vineyards, planted to the most splendid sites. Inspired by the classic, pure varietal wines of Burgundy and the Rhone, Red Claw are a tribute to the unique terroirs of Mornington, as cultivated by the skills of the eminent Yabby Lake viticultural team. Their collaborative approach and deep commitment to producing the very finest, has crystallized into vintages of the most remarkable wines.
For everyone at Yabby Lake, the winemaking is all about persistence and vigilance, coupled with a deep seated passion for making supreme wine. The combination of a warm site in a cool region means that Pinot Gris ripens in good order to produce wines of outstanding quality. The favourable microclimes translate into fully ripened fruit harvested to idyllic conditions. Crop levels are carefully managed to produce the consumate Pinot Gris. Fruit is hand picked and whole bunch pressed. After settling, batches are racked for vinification. Upon completion of ferments, parcels are held on sedimentery lees and stirred fortnightly to build textural palate richness. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw, greenish hues. Complex aromas, hints of honey and hay, lychees and a touch of spice. The palate leads off beautifully textured and rounded, following through with an array of complex and delicate floral nuances, oranges and sultana, lychee and cut hay notes. Sweet fruit is enhanced by a clean, crisp lingering finish.

More About Yabby Lake Winery
Yabby Lake Vineyard was established in 1998 on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, with the long-term goal of producing benchmark wines from the Burgundian varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
Yabby Lake Vineyard is owned by Robert and Mem Kirby who have been intimately involved in the Mornington Peninsula region for decades. The Kirbys are joined by two outstanding and renowned winemakers: Group Winemaker Tod Dexter and Consulting Winemaker Larry McKenna. Tod and Larry are known for their relaxed and unassuming personalities, and they apply the same approach to their winemaking: they work with the grapes to develop beautiful and distinctly superior wines that are truly expressive of Yabby Lake Vineyard. The first vintage from Yabby Lake Vineyard was produced in 2002. Yabby Lake»
