Every aspect of Yabby Lake vineyard's establishment was fundamenal to the success of its wines many years later, from soil mapping to climate analysis to vine layout. Selection of site was the priority, the vineyard was planted from the ground up to the most exacting requirements. Pruned and closely managed vines, yield limited harvests of intense flavour, translating into well balanced wines. A mixture of destemmed and whole bunch fruit are filled into open fermenters for three days of cold soak. A week or more of ferments is followed by transfer to a selection of French 500 litres oak puncheons for ten months maturation, a final racking and assemblage into the finished wne.
Deep crimson in colour. The aromas are dominated by cherry, strawberry and dark berry fruits complemented by a touch of spice and underlying French oak. The palate has a lovely soft and velvety texture, with powerful flavours of dark fruits and a finely structured finish. Have it with duck or venison, game dishes and washed rind cheese.
