Vintage 2013 produced exceptionally balanced fruit with terrific acidity and depth of flavour. A blessed vintage, the best ‘odd year’ in our part of the world since 2005.

The 2013 vintage heralds a new era for our Pink Claw Rosé, which for the first time has been crafted from Grenache, handpicked from our Heathcote vineyard. The old world’s best rosé wines are always Grenache - based and winemaker Tom Carson is excited to now be able to draw on our planting of Grenache at Heathcote Estate to craft this special wine. Stylistically, the wine remains the same – crisp, dry and with a lovely savoury edge. The Grenache brings added fruit vibrancy and lovely raspberry scented notes.

Winery Tasting Notes

The resulting wine has lifted raspberry aromas and a crisp, dry, palate with juicy red berry fruit and a refreshing, savoury finish. It is bone dry, savoury and perfectly suited to modern Australian cuisine.

*Pink Claw has been created by the Kirby family, founders of Yabby Lake, to help raise awareness of breast cancer which directly affects thousands of Australian families each year. A portion of the profits from the sale of this wine goes to Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Yabby Lake is a dynamic Australian wine producer intent on crafting wines with a genuine sense of identity. We own vineyards in three distinct regions of Victoria, producing single vineyard wines under the Yabby Lake and Heathcote Estate labels. Red Claw and Cooralook are regional expressions of Mornington Peninsula, Heathcote and the Strathbogie Ranges.

Founded by the Kirby family, the Yabby Lake business is now headed up by Chief Winemaker and General Manager Tom Carson with a dedicated team of the industry's most experienced wine professionals working to deliver the Kirby family vision.

The first chapter of this exciting Australian wine story started in 1992 when the Kirby family planted its first vineyard at Red Hill on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. Intimately involved in the Mornington Peninsula region for decades, it was only natural that founders Robert and Mem Kirby would plant their first vines in the area.

In 1998, after much searching and careful planning, the Yabby Lake Vineyard was established in the sub-region of Moorooduc.

One year later, a rare and special parcel of land on the ancient Cambrian soils of Heathcote was planted with the sole objective to grow and craft one wine - a single vineyard shiraz.

Around the same time, the family also purchased the original Mount Helen Vineyard in the Strathbogie Ranges.

The Kirby family began working with viticulturist Keith Harris and soon engaged Larry McKenna to oversee the early vintages. Renowned Mornington Peninsula winemaker Tod Dexter was employed in 2004, applying his specialist knowledge of the region.

In 2008, after a decade of careful planning of the family's wine interests, Robert and Mem handed control of the family's vineyards and established labels to their children Nina and Clark.
