95 Points - Shanteh Wale
Yarrabank has been a long time favourite sparkling wine of ours, consistently delivering an exceptional example of vintage Australian sparkling wine. Made through a joint venture between Champagne Veuve A. Devaux and the highly regarded Yering Station of the Yarra Valley.
The 2017 Yarrabank Cuvee Brut Sparkling is made in the 'Methode Traditionnelle' and it's clear to see the French influence here. Aromas of citrus apple and bread-dough leads into a complex palate displaying zesty cool-climate fruit, creaminess and subtle yeast influence. An Australian vintage sparkling wine of the highest quality, this is well deserving of its position among the top echelon of local examples.
"95 Points. A consistently impressive traditional method sparkling and graces many of the top wine lists of this country. The 2017 is made up of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from the Wombat Creek vineyard with an impressive 6 years on lees and 3g/l dosage. Green apple skin curls, lemon balm and white peaches in syrup. The palate abounds with grapefruit, lemon curd and honeysuckle with persistent soaring acidity and a long white chocolate, nougatine finish. Golden syrup oozing through baked crumpets, this is less messy and just as indulgent. A wine with plenty of years ahead of it, drink now or will cellar for another 5 years. Drink with scallop bathed in browned butter in the half shell. A stella wine to stock up with for Christmas festivities. $45. Drink: 2023 - 2028."- Shanteh Wale, winepilot.com.
