Yabby Lake Vineyard Single Block Release Chardonnay

Yabby Lake Vineyard was established in 1998 in the sub-region of Moorooduc, situated in the north of the Mornington Peninsula. The winemaking philosophy at Yabby Lake is expression over impression, crafting wines that reflect the spirit of the season and vineyard.

This is the 8th release of Single Block wines, since the inaugural 2008 vintage. Single Block Releases are only made in the most exceptional years, when a parcel stands out for its individual personality, a small amount of that parcel is bottled separately under the Single Block label. This chardonnay shows great purity, beautiful natural acidity, line and length.
