Red Claw Pinot Noir
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. Average winter rains lead to good bud break and excellent early season growth. The drought returned in spring with below average rainfall, but with access to recycled water for irrigation the dry period was not a concern and good, healthy growth continued through December and early January. An overwhelming heatwave struck between 28-30 January and extreme temperatures returned on 7 February. Fortunately, with plenty of water available we immediately implemented a full program of irrigation. T he effect of the heat was significant, however rigorous hand selection was implemented in the vineyard to ensure that only the best fruit was delivered to the winery – this resulted in a 30% loss on forecasted crop levels. O ur meticulous approach allowed us to identify the blocks that delivered excellent quality, resulting in delicate and complex fruit flavours and lower alcohols in the wines.
