About

Yabby Lake are well renowned for producing some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in not only Mornington Peninsular but the whole country.

They focus individual parcels of these varieties and consistently churn out some of the region’s most elegant and thought-provoking wines.

2011 was a cool year on the Peninsula, the natural acidity in certain parcels of the Yabby Lake crop the fruit lent itself perfectly to making a premium vintage sparkling.

“The 2011 growing season was cooler and wetter than average and subsequently produced delicate and composed wines. A perfect season for sparkling wine.” offers Tom Carson, the Yabby Lake winemaker.

He has knocked this out of the park. Made in the traditional method with a small portion of 2010 reserve Chardonnay thrown in for a little extra gravitas, this is the goods.

What It Tastes Like

“The tension of the cold ‘11 vintage is captured in a high-tensile style of lemon and apple fruit, with complexity and texture built by a touch of ‘10 chardonnay and 4 years on yeast lees. Subtle dosage of 3.5g/l upholds tension on the finish, which will benefit from time in bottle to soften and build depth.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
