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.
