SKU: 2018 Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Cuvée Nina

Robert and Mem Kirby established the Yabby Lake Vineyard in 1998.  This Single Vineyard Cuvée is named after their daughter Nina. 

The 2018 season was characterised by a warm and extended summer. The wines are intensely flavoured, yet poised and balanced, ensuring their longevity. 

From this classic vintage, the 2018 Cuvée Nina is made by the traditional method, spending three years on lees. A wine of great delicacy and finesse. Winemaker: Tom Carson

Tasting Notes
From the classic 2018 vintage, this is a wine of great delicacy and finesse. A fine, dry aperitif style, the extended time on lees imparts wonderful complexity and texture. Pure, with incredible line and length, the wine has a poised, lingering finish.
