  • THE BRIEF
  • Yabby Lake Vineyard was established by the Kirby family in 1998, in Tuerong, which is located in the northern part of the peninsula.

    Led by winemaker Tom Carson, their philosophy is to craft wines that speak of our site and the season in which they were grown. It's the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression.Yabby Lake's vision and dedication has lead to some exciting accolades in recent years, including our history-making Block 1 Pinot Noir - which was the first pinot noir ever to win the revered Jimmy Watson Trophy, after 52 years of the award.

    Yabby Lake can do no wrong when it comes to making stand-out wines. This pinot gris is no exception. It's refined and fresh with bright fruit aromas and a delicate floral lift. Winemaker Tom Carson lets the fruit do the talking, and talk it does. This gris is seamless and refreshing with great depth of fruit flavour and a long, clean finish. Wonderfully versatile, it will work its magic next to seafood, tomato based pasta dishes or a good aged cheddar.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The fruit was handpicked on 22 February and whole bunch pressed. The juice was then cold settled and wild fermented with 50% in stainless steel and 50% in old French puncheons (500L). The wine was bottled in October 2018.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Refined and fresh, bright fruit aromas and a lovely floral lift. Beautifully textured palate, delicious depth of fruit – with nashi pear and subtle spice. Seamless and refreshing, the wine finishes long and fine.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Yabby Lake Vineyard was established by the Kirby family in 1998, in Tuerong, which is located in the northern part of Mornington Peninsula. Over the past decade, the vineyard has built a reputation for single vineyard chardonnay and pinot noir of great purity and character. Led by winemaker Tom Carson, their philosophy is to craft wines that speak of site and season. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression. Careful site selection and an unyielding pursuit of quality have quickly elevated Yabby Lake into an upper echelon of producers in the region. Their vision and dedication has lead to some exciting accolades in recent years, including the history-making Block 1 Pinot Noir - the first pinot noir ever to win the revered Jimmy Watson Trophy, after 52 years of the award. The Yabby Lake is located in the Moorooduc sub-region of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula wine growing region. The first vineyards were planted at Red Hill. Yabby Lake produces premium wines with a focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The wines have a nod in the direction of the wines of Burgundy in France, but do still show unashamed bright Australian fruit flavours and textures. A Shiraz and Pinot Gris is also produced. Yabby Lake is the core brand but there is an association with Heathcote Estate from Heathcote, and the Red Claw and Cooralook wine ranges. A state of the art winery employs modern technique to carefully sort selected fruit. Though high technology comes into play, a reverence for old world wine making allows the fruit to express itself in more natural terms. Minimal intervention and winemaking artifice are secondary to quality fruit.

    STEVEN CREBER - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Whole-bunch pressed, 50% barrel-fermented and aged in old French puncheons. Perfumed aromas of apple and pear with hint of grape skin. A beautifully textured palate (the oak playing a part), mouthfilling but not heavy, the flavours lingering and the acidity woven seamlessly into the fabric, then persisting in the aftertaste.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Hand-picked solely from Block 2, whole-bunch pressed, part fermented in used French puncheons. The aromas of the bouquet are positively heady with floral cherry blossom, then a textured and intense palate with far more to say for itself than all but a few of its combatants.'
