96 Points - Jane Faulkner
Over the past decade Yabby Lake has built a reputation for producing some of the finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made on the Mornington Peninsula. Led by the highly credentialed winemaker Tom Carson, Yabby Lake's philosophy is to craft wines that speak of their site and their season in which they were grown.
The 2022 vintage produced tiny yields; the lowest in Yabby Lake's history. The total crop was down 70% on their long-term average, due to severe storms during flowering. However, the positive is the wines are of exceptional quality; intense, with incredible balance and persistence.
This 2022 Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is a beautifully aromatic example with plenty of fragrant floral, spice and red and dark fruits notes. The palate is finely structured, with the finest of tannins running with a line of cherry, wild strawberry and a host of darker fruits. Super silky and exceptionally balanced at this young age, this should deliver plenty of drinking pleasure over the coming 5 to 10 years.
"96 Points. Well, where to start with this beauty that took my breath away? Awash with dark cherries, blood orange and zest, Middle Eastern spices and sous bois aromas plus savoury oak. The palate is the clincher: smooth and polished with velvety tannins and fine acidity enticing it all to a long finish. Wow. 13.5% alc. $75. Screwcap.
