Yabby Lake's 'Block' wines are only released when they are deemed to be outstanding, the 2018 releases are just that. Block 1 is planted in the north-west corner of the Yabby Lake vineyard on light sand and clay. This is structured and long, with plush red berries and hints of violet, as well as some spice. Wow.
Hand-picked and sorted, gently destemmed leaving 25% whole bunches in traditional oak ferment, 3-4 days cold soak, 14 days on skins, pressed to French puncheons for 9 months maturation. Exceptional colour; super supple mouthfeel, a velvety mid-palate balanced by savoury/foresty glimpses on the finish.
