The Yabby Lake team know about things Heathcote Shiraz. Red Claw is clearly a very special wine, crafted from hand picked parcels of the most intensely flavoured fruit, harvested off the prestigious Heathcote Estate Vineyard. A stately construct of Shiraz, layered with viscous black berry fruit flavours and sheathed in carriage of stealthy terra rosa tannins.
Heathcote is renowned the world over for Shiraz. The rich red Cambrian soil and dry mild climate provide the idyllic foundation for producing world class wines. Yabby Lake enjoy close ties to the region and have secured fruit from the best vineyards, expressly for the formulation of powerful yet approachable wines. Parcels of Shiraz from the prestigious Heathcote Estate property are vinified for three weeks on skins in a traditional mix of open and closed fermentation vessels. Upon completion, components are pressed to a selection of seasoned and new, exclusively French oak hogsheads and barriques for fifteen months maturation and a periodic course of racking for clarification before assemblage. Alcohol 14.0%
TASTING NOTES
Dark red/purple. Lovely intense Shiraz fruit leaps from the glass, berry fruits, spices and clove dominate, brooding with underlying scents of pepper, herbs of provence and classy French oak. The palate is loaded with dark fruited intensity, texture, balance and length of palate. Lush ripe sweet berries are followed by subtle nuances of spice and toasted oak.

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»
