Overview

Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Chardonnay is a seamless wine with lovely complexity and depth of fruit.

The fruit was handpicked, with each block handled separately in the winery to ensure each parcel could reach its potential. The fruit was whole bunch pressed into tight grain French oak barriques (10% new). All wild ferment. The wine was matured on lees for 10 months, without malolactic fermentation proceeding, until bottling in February 2014.

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.
