Review: Yabby Lake – Red Claw Pinot Noir (2014)

Red Claw Pinot Noir from Yabby Lake

The Wine Review:

Picked this one to contrast with the 6 foot 6 Geelong pinot. I have a pretty good handle on Yarra Valley Pinot’s but have not tried much from Mornington Peninsula or Geelong to get a good read on the differences of Victorian PN’s. This Pinot Noir is made from the clones MV6, G5V15, 114, 115 and D4V2,

Nose: Red fruit and oak Taste. Light and bright. Cherries first up with fresh acidity and some grassy notes. Some oak harshness on the end but it is very young at the moment. A fresh, zingy and vibrant little number. One to sip over dinner on date night
