Yabby Lake is a dynamic Australian wine producer intent on crafting wines with a genuine sense of identity. We own vineyards in three distinct regions of Victoria, producing single vineyard wines under the Yabby Lake and Heathcote Estate labels. Red Claw and Cooralook are regional expressions of Mornington Peninsula, Heathcote and the Strathbogie Ranges.
Yabby Lake is a regional varietal specialist. So what does that actually mean you may ask?
We have established vineyards in some of the country's premier wine growing regions and we're single-minded about creating wines that speak of these sites. It's about a sense of place, about character and allowing the variety to reach new heights.
It all started with a commitment to listen to our land. To grow only the right varieties, the right clones on the right sites - row by row, block by block - in the regions that do it best.
We understand we are the custodians of our land for but a short time and to make the wines deserved of these sites we must have rich, healthy soils. This philosophy has led us to minimal chemical input in the vineyard and a move towards organic viticultural techniques.
Our vision goes way beyond the vineyard or winery gate, we're an international business constantly developing innovative ways to take our wines to the world - from the local wine bar on the corner to our cellar doors in China.
