Winery YABBY LAKE VINEYARD

Yabby Lake

The Kirby family set up Yabby Lake in 1992, however, it wasn’t until 1998, that they located and planted their first vineyard site in the sub-region of Moorooduc, Mornington Peninsula. Under the winemaking helm of Tom Carson, Yabby Lake has built an enviable reputation for crafting impeccably balanced premium wines highly expressive of variety and site. Alongside the Yabby Lake estate label, several other ranges are produced including Heathcote Estate, and Yabby Lake’s early drinking second label Red Claw.

Red Claw is the highly-regarded ‘second-label’ of Yabby Lake. Its primary focus is the Mornington Peninsula, where Yabby Lake has 50 hectares of estate vineyards at Moorooduc. Red Claw makes ‘fresh, expressive wines from our own vineyards’ and strives for a quality image, but without complications. ‘For all our style’, they say, ‘there’s a whole lot of substance to back it up’. Red Claw’s Peninsula-sourced range comprises Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Red Claw Shiraz comes from Heathcote, where Heathcote Estate is part of the group.
