96 Points - James Halliday
Over the past decade Yabby Lake has built a reputation for producing some of the finest cool-climate wines 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 Syrah is another beautifully perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style. The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth. Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for ten years.
"96 Points. It takes a microsecond for the wine to establish this part of the Mornington Peninsula's ability to deliver full-bodied shiraz that hasn't been over-extracted or otherwise forced to provide its layered purple and black fruits. The oak and tannin contributions have been calculated with the usual attention to detail. 14% alc. To 2033. $36"- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021.
