The subtle variations on each block infuse grapes with a great depth of character and personality which is realized in the finished wine. Fruit is hand picked and each block is handled separately to ensure individual parcels achieve their ultimate potential. Bunches are gently whole pressed through small batches into a selection of seasoned and new, tightly grained 500 litre French oak puncheons. Vinification commences naturally through the action of wild indigenous yeasts and is complete in a little over a fortnight. Yabby Lake is matured eleven months on gross sedimentery lees without any malolactic treatments, before identifying the best barrels for assemblage into the finished wine.
Brilliant, vibrant appearance. Fine, lifted nose, complex and beguiling. The palate is fine and tightly wound with a precise mineral intensity. Elegantly balanced, dominated by crisp varietal fruit and integrated nutty oak. Medium bodied, well structured, showing great length and poise, finishing with great purity and length.
