SKU: 2022 Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

Our philosophy is to craft single vineyard wines of great purity and character, reflective of our site and the season in which it was grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression.

2022 is a vintage of tiny yields, the lowest in our history.  The total crop was down 70% on our long-term average, we averaged 700kg per acre.  This was due to severe storms during flowering.  However, the positive is the wines are of exeptional quality - they are intense, with incredible balnace and persistence. 


Winemaker Notes
(Clones: 43% MV6, 37% G5V15, 10% Abel, 2% D4V2). Harvest was in March, over a 14-day period for pinot noir. The fruit was handpicked, with each parcel handled separtely in the winery. Hand sorted and carefully de-stemmed, the whole berries were then transferred to oak fermentation vats for natural fermentation. Once fermentation was complete, the wines were transferred to French oak 500L barrels for maturation, 20% of which were new. The wines were left undisturbed until estate bottling in late January 2023.
Tasting Notes
A bright and dense crimson colour. The aromas are intense and complex for a young wine - red fruits, raspberry, red currant with dark cherries, coupled with a floral and spicy note. The palate is super fine and silky with layers of flavour and texture leading to a long and bold finish. Cellar for at least five years, and preferably more than 10.
