Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 91 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front "Red Claw is made by Yabby lake and everything the Yabby does these days seems to be both quality and class. This isn’t the most complex offering but it hits the spot nicely. It tastes of apple, pear and spice, has an attractive perfumed quality, and finishes dry, clean and incisive."
From the Winery
Winter of 2014 was colder and drier than normal leading to a warm, dry spring that saw good even bud break and consistent healthy shoot growth. While budburst was in line with the previous season, flowering was just more than a week later, reflecting a normal weather pattern that was slightly drier than normal, perfect for flowering and fruit set.
A cooler than average summer coupled with good rain at the right times saw consistent, healthy growth in all blocks. There was no disease pressure observed and the season proceeded in a very, even and pleasing fashion. A very cool dry March led to a longer ripening period allowing for maximum flavour development with good rain occurring at the right time to maintain vine health.
Harvest started on 18 February and the 2015 vintage proceeded exceptionally well. With the ripening period so even, all fruit was picked in optimum condition. Bunch and berry weights were ideal and all the fruit arrived at the winery in excellent condition with excellent fruit flavours and terrific natural acidity. Early indications are that the 2015 vintage will be as highly regarded as the 2010 and 2012 vintages.
