Bright yellow in hue – as with all of our whites, wild-yeast fermentation gives stability and uniform colour from centre to rim. The nose shows the beautiful caramel of barrel-fermentation, a trait shared with the great Chardonnays of Burgundy. Elevated, cool-climate fruit slows across the palate – it’s elegant and powerful at the same time. The recipe is clear, and all the ingredients are on the kitchen bench – watch this blossom and grow. A Chardonnay for lovers of Chardonnay.
Vibrant purple – the colour more the sum than its parts. Red fruits and a brooding core in concert with oak-derived spice. Its strength is through its subtlety.
Cranberries and BRIGHT red cherries – overtly aromatic, and compelling before it’s sipped.There’s no identity crisis here – unmistakable FRANC – the fruit sits proudly above all else.
Sourced from our two vineyards in Orange, this Sauvignon Blanc benefits from the ripeness and tropical notes from our home block at Griffin Rd (740m), and the thirst-slaking acidity generated of our newer vineyard at Wallace Lane (1000m).
It’s not opaque, but it is serious. Intense notes of white pepper; woodspice; and mulberries. Fragrant and generous. A Northern Rhone sensibility (Hermitage) adorns this wine.
Lovely rich straw colour from centre to rim – it’s erudite and refined. It has a tease of citrus, and a hint of dried-herbs with fine ribs flowing from an acid spine.
With the rise of the “natural wine” movement, we were pleased to discover we’d been making this wine “that way” for years…with wild yeast , no additions and no clarification, this is a wine of energy and life.
