The tension of the cold '11 vintage is captured in a high-tensile style of lemon and apple fruit, with complexity and texture built by a touch of '10 chardonnay and 4 years on yeast lees. Subtle dosage of 3.5g/l upholds tension on the finish, which will benefit from time in bottle to soften and build depth. TYSON STELZER

With the drought in Victoria finally broken, winter rain in 2010 was above average and was followed by two wet spring months in September and October. Fortunately it dried up in late November and early December to allow flowering and fruit set to occur. This cold, wet weather pattern continued into 2011 with February and March both two degrees below average temperatures. Fortunately April temperatures returned to normal allowing fruit to ripen slowly into vintage, which was two to three weeks later than has been ‘the norm’. Meticulous vineyard management allowed us to produce fruit of exceptional quality from this lower yielding year.

The 2011 growing season was cooler and wetter than average and subsequently produced delicate and composed wines. A perfect season for sparkling wine.

From a cool elegant vintage, this wine shows great delicacy and finesse.  A fine, dry aperitif style, the extended time on lees imparts wonderful complexity and texture. Pure and with incredible line and length, the wine has poised, lingering finish. YABBY LAKE
