Review: Yabby Lake – Mornington Peninsula Single Vineyard Pinot Noir (2012)
WineChatty's Pick

Mornington Peninsula Single Vineyard Pinot Noir from Yabby Lake

The Wine Review:

A rich and dark crimson red coloured wine, so dark you could easily have mistaken it for some other red variety. If the dark colour was an indicator it would allude to the rich, powerful fruits held within. The nose is restrained, hints of red fruits and subtle touches of oak. The aroma really doesn’t prepare you for the “wow-factor” in the taste. On the palate it’s just pure yum (yes that’s scientific wine description :P). This is exactly how an ideal Pinot Noir should start off (for my palate at least) a touch of sweetness on the initial front that eases you in to the fruit flavours. In terms of fruit flavours, the red fruits are present but also the darker fruits flow through and add weight to the body. The tannins are smooth and nicely integrated. The taste ends with a savoury note that’s a bit fleshy and a touch of creamy cheese. I definitely recommend trying this one if you haven’t already. Hmmm, my glass is empty and needs a refill.
