Yarrabank Cuvee 2013
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.
2013 release is here … 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 22 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. 56% chardonnay and 44% pinot noir. Made in the traditional fashion, this was aged for 5 years on lees without mlf. The dosage is in check at 5g/l, the texture ample and creamy, with plenty of toast, iodine and baked apple notes lending credence to a salubrious bready style. Plenty of colour already, yet impressive in its weight, vitality and detail. Cork. 13% alc. $38” – Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.
