It is while grapes are still growing on the vine that great vintages are made, the focus at Yabby Lake is to translate the fruit into a wine without any distortion. Yabby Lake are renowned for their splendid intensity and exquisite balance, speaking clearly of terroir and of clime, it's all about expression over impression. Engagingly complex with immense depth of character, the palate is powerfully structured, laden with impenetrably dark berry fruit flavous, lined with silky textures and driven by amazing persistence.
The viticulture at Yabby Lake is all about realizing minimal harvests of small bunches and tiny berries, more quality and just a little less quantity. Pinot Noir clones MV6, G5V15 and DV24, from Blocks 1, 2, 5 and 6, grown to the sandy clay loams of Yabbly Lake Vineyard at Tuerong. Grapes are hand picked, hand sorted and destemmed into traditional open top oak fermenters, a fifth is included as whole bunches. Vinifications are hand plunged up to three times daily as temperatures peak at 32ÂșC, batches are pressed off skins after a fortnight of ferments into a selection of 500 litre French oak puncheons for completion of malolactic and eleven months maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Great depth of colour. Ripe black cherry, dark forest berries and asian spice with perfumed oak aromas. The palate displays a complex array of ripe small berry characters and spicy oak. Yabby Lake has excellent density, concentration and pin point balance. It is the texture and mouthfeel of this wine that is most exciting, rich and velvety with intense varietal fruit flavours and a powerful long finish.

More About Yabby Lake Wines
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»
