2010 YABBY LAKE SINGLE VINEYARD 'LATE DISGORGED' CUVEE NINA

 

VINTAGE 2010

Following significant spring rain periods, the early growing season for vintage 2010 started extremely well with good vigour, strong canopies and very good vine health. Rain episodes occurred at very useful stages and weather through flowering was fine and warm ensuring good berry set.

Picking started in February, the earliest start for still wines (late Feb) in the last ten years. The Mornington Peninsula was fortunate not to experience the extremes in weather, experienced in Melbourne and other regions. The protection offered by the maritime influence on the unique location of the region is significant.  2010 was an exceptional vintage for the region with very high quality fruit, excellent natural acidity and flavours.

Tasting note

A fine, dry aperitif style, the extended time on lees imparts incredible complexity and texture while also capturing remarkable freshness, purity and finesse.  The wine is pure and elegant with wonderful biscuity brioche and almond characters - with a poised lingering finish.
