Yabby Lake Vineyard was established by the Kirby family in 1998, in Tuerong, which is located in the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. Over the past decade, the vineyard has built a reputation for chardonnay and pinot noir of great purity and character under its Single Vineyard and Single Block Release labels. Led by winemaker Tom Carson, the Yabby Lake 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.

2022 was a vintage of tiny yields, the lowest in our history. This was due to severe storms during flowering. However, the positive is the wines are of exceptional quality - they are intense, with incredible balance and persistence. Harvest was in March and over a 14-day period for pinot noir. The fruit was handpicked, with each parcel handled separately in the winery. Hand sorted and carefully de-stemmed, the whole berries were then transferred to oak fermentation vats for natural fermentation. Once fermentation was complete, the wines were transferred to French oak 500L barrels for maturation, 20% of which were new.

A bright and dense crimson colour. The aromas are intense and complex for a young wine - quite intense dark cherry, red fruits, raspberry, red currant, coupled with a floral and spicy note. The palate is super fine and silky with layers of red fruits and florals. It is rounded and intense with layers of flavour and texture leading to a long and bold finish. This wine will age gracefully for 10-15 years.
