Product Description

Red Claw Pinot Gris


Robert and Mem Kirby planted the first Yabby Lake Vineyard in Red Hill in 1992 with extended plantings to the Moorooduc sub region in 1998. With enormous passion they have swiftly established Yabby Lake as one of Australia’s finest vineyards. The Creation of “Red Claw” the freshwater Yabby has been inspired by their enthusiasm to further produce quality wines that are truly expressive of the Mornington Peninsula region. Following signifi cant spring rain periods (above average rainfall in October and December) the early growing season for vintage 2010 started extremely well with good vigor, strong canopies and very good vine health. Rain episodes occurred throughout the season at very useful stages ensuring healthy vine growth was maintained. Weather through fl owering was fi ne and warm ensuring good berry set. Picking started in late February about one week earlier than recent average and was probably the earliest start in the last ten years. The Mornington Peninsula was fortunate not to experience the extremes in weather, such as hail and fl ooding, which were experienced in Melbourne and other regions. The protection offered by the maritime influence on the unique location of the region is significant. A great vintage for the region with very high quality fruit with excellent natural acidity and great flavours.
