About The Wine

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 Yabby Lake winemkaer Tom Carson.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

With the drought in Victoria finally broken, winter rain in 2010 was above average and was followed by two wet spring months in September and October. Fortunately it dried up in late November and early December to allow flowering and fruit set to occur.

This cold, wet weather pattern continued into 2011 with February and March both two degrees below average temperatures. Fortunately April temperatures returned to normal allowing fruit to ripen slowly into vintage, which was two to three weeks later than has been ‘the norm’. Meticulous vineyard management allowed us to produce fruit of exceptional quality from this lower yielding year.

Traditional Method. Whole bunch pressed, only the cuvée used (512.5L/t). Primary fermentation in stainless steel before bottling and secondary fermentation in bottle for 4 years on lees.

Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2023

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"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 (Halliday Wine Companion)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
