Yabby Lake `Block 1` Pinot Noir 2013 (3 x 750mL), Mornington Peninsula.

These wines reflect our philosophy at Yabby Lake - to craft wines that reflect the spirit of the season and vineyard.

Our wines are not cluttered by a heavy hand in the winery, they express the subtle variations in each block’s soil, aspect and clones. As we put the final blend together, if something stands out we take a small parcel and bottle it separately – under our single block label – still allowing the significant proportion to go into the single vineyard wine.

97 Points. James Halliday - Wine Companion.27 July 2015

Cold soaked in small open pots 14 days on skins; matured in French puncheons for 10 months. Bright crimson; the bouquet is highly floral and scented with intriguing Asian spices shot through its bevy of red and black cherry fruits, the palate combining all of the characters of the bouquet with a nuanced savoury twist.
