97 Points - James Halliday
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.
This 2018 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.
"97 Points. Multiple clones hand-picked and sorted, 25% whole bunches, gentle destemming, 13-15 days on skins, matured in French puncheons (25% new) for 11 months. Perfectly balanced, it has developed into an entrancing, delicately framed and poised wine with a silky mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste.
