Yabby Lake Block 1 Chardonnay 2012

Yabby Lake

Inspired by the classic wines of Burgundy, Yabby Lake Vineyard wines are a tribute to the unique Mornington Peninsula terroir, and the skills and experience of winemakers Tod Dexter and Larry McKenna.

Their collaborative approach to winemaking, combined with Yabby Lake Vineyard's long-term commitment to producing the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, have resulted in the creation of some remarkable wines.

In 2013 the country's most coveted red wine trophy was awarded to a Pinot Noir for the first time in its 52-year history. The Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy was awarded to Yabby Lake Block 1 Pinot Noir 2012, from Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards.

Description

Another superb chardonnay from the Yabby Lake fold. Citrus, grapefruit and floral notes make up the heart of what is a complex and seamless chardonnay with great depth of flavour and mineral intensity. It can easily accommodate 5-6 years cellaring if you’d like to see how it develops.

Tasting Notes

Grapes/Blend

100% Chardonnay

Vinification

The fruit was handpicked and pressed into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons. Fermentation commenced naturally after 8 days and was completed in 19 days.

Maturation

The wine was matured without malolactic fermentation proceeding, on lees until bottling in February 2013.

Aroma

The aroma is a complex array of citrus blossom, lemon rind, almond meal and a hint of struck match.

Palate

The palate has a great depth of flavour and texture and is tightly wound together with a precise mineral intensity. The wine finishes pure and long.
