Yarrabank Cuvee 2012
HOT 6 PACK BUY. Exceptional vintage sparkling from the Yarra. 95 points Halliday.
Yarrabank is widely recognised as one of Australia’s flagship sparkling wines poured at the finest restaurants. A joint venture between Champagne Devaux in France and Yering Station of Yarra Valley has produced this top shelf vintage sparkling – 51% Chardonnay and 49% Pinot Noir, 5 years on lees, always made to avoid malolactic fermentation to showcase the delicate fruit, pristine freshness and racy acidity which is the signature Yarrabank style.
2012 was an exceptional growing season in the Yarra Valley. Grapes picked at optimal ripeness with a balance of intense natural acidity and tight focused flavours. Grapes are gently pressed to retain freshness and purity. Only the heart run of the berries is used and fermented in tank to maintain a pristine line of concentration.
Fresh Nashi pear, anzac biscuit and subtle spice on the nose is followed by ripe apples with fresh yellow citrus and a subtle yeasty complexity on the palate with a delicious creamy centre. 13% alc.
This release celebrates 21 years of making this fine wine that James Halliday describes : “… outstanding, the wines have a delicacy unmatched by any other Australian sparkling wines.”
95 points, James Halliday’s 2019 Australian Wine Companion “… Yellow-straw; complex wine, nashi pear and biscuit on the bouquet leads into a rich palate with peach and nectarine fruit, creamy mouthfeel.
