Yabby Lake Vineyard was established in 1998 on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, with the long-term goal of producing benchmark wines from the Burgundian varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Yabby Lake Vineyard is owned by Robert and Mem Kirby who have been intimately involved in the Mornington Peninsula region for decades. The Kirbys are joined by two outstanding and renowned winemakers: Group Winemaker Tod Dexter and Consulting Winemaker Larry McKenna. Tod and Larry are known for their relaxed and unassuming personalities, and they apply the same approach to their winemaking: they work with the grapes to develop beautiful and distinctly superior wines that are truly expressive of Yabby Lake Vineyard. The first vintage from Yabby Lake Vineyard was produced in 2002. Read less

A slightly opaque center fades into a light purple rim. Aromas of crushed berries are delicately interlaced with sandalwood and cinammon. The palate shows medium intensity with a quiet attack which suddenly explodes with mouthfilling flavors that imp... Chuck Hayward.

Bright clear crimson-red; a fragrant bouquet of gently spicy berries leads into a beautifully balanced and proportioned palate, the dark berry fruits in a silky web of tannins. Screwcap. James Halliday. A Pinot Noir wine from Victoria in Australia. 2007 Yabby Lake Pinot Noir 750ml

Light in texture, with a pure bead of blackberry, black pepper and iron overtones. Finishes long, with finesse and fine tannins. Drink now through 2012. -HS Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Victoria in Australia. 2006 Yabby Lake Pinot Noir 750ml
