Tod Dexter has made a very special wine out of a small planting of superb Shiraz. In 1997 when the Yabby Lake Vineyard was acquired, it was identified that there was a thin strip of soil through the middle of the property which was unsuitable for Burgundian varietals. It was decided that the two small blocks in the section would be best planted to Shiraz, a bold move in 1997 for the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay obsessed Mornington Peninsula. Two ancient Australian clones were selected, BVRC 12 and PT23, both known to be outstanding performers.
The climes of the Yabby Lake vineyard are readily moderated with cooling sea breezes. Intensive, hands on, viticultural techniques such as shoot thinning and positioning, leaf plucking and fruit thinning is employed throughout the season ensured the fruit was in perfect condition. Grapes are hand picked and then gently crushed into open fermenters. A Pinot Noir winemakers approach to this wine, techniques such as retention of whole berries, gentle handling and hand plunging were utilized. Pressing occurred after three weeks on skins in an air bag press. The wine was then transferred to 100% new French oak barriques where it remained for maturation for twenty four months to gain mouth feel and complexity.
TASTING NOTES
Deep magenta colour. The bouquet has wonderful intensity and fragrance, spicy French oak, plums, dark berries and ribena. The palate oozes with luscious fruit, a wonderful velvety texture that lingers on the harmonious finish, on and on. A full bodied yet elegant cool climate Shiraz, named for the founder of Village Roadshow, made in painfully limited quantities.
 Yabby Lake
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. Yabby Lake»
