2010 Yarrabank Cuvee Brut

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Pale Straw

Nose: Grapefruit blossum with a creamy ripe apple overlay. Rich and complex.

Palate: A warm 2010 vintage. Complex yeast autolysis with a creamy centre. The 2010 Yarrabank displays a plum centre with ripe apple finishing with a fine line of racy acidity and minerality.

Alcohol: 13%

Winemaking: 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 are used and then fermented in tank to maintain a pristine line of concentration.

2010 Yarrabank Cuvee Brut

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
A full yellow hue with copper tints introduces a cuvee of surprising development for fruit sourced largely in the Upper Yarra Valley in the cool '11 vintage. It's well into the secondary phase of its life, already toasty, biscuity, spicy and honeyed, and while it's reached this point faster than expected, it's otherwise a compelling, mature Yarra style.
Campbell Mattinson (2011 Vintage) says
53% chardonnay, 47% pinot noir. None of it goes through mlf. 15% of it spends time in 5500 litre oak. It’s a classy style of sparkling wine. A beautiful style. It’s characterised by its elegance and by its length. Fresh biscuity flavours, some steel, some nectarine and subtle white peach. Bead is ultra fine and the flavours extend long through the mouth. Quite entrancing.
