Light in colour and cloudy by design. Think smoky tangerine spice and florals, followed by a long savoury palate of fleshy citrus and green herbs. A sweet sherbet lick kicks in before the long dry finish, all held together with racy acidity.
Fosters Nebbiolo from Yallingup in the north of the region. Hand-picked at 13 baume to retain acidity, the grapes were immediately basket-pressed to mature French oak – skin-time approx 2 hours. Regular light lees stirring added complexity and texture.
Wine was settled in tank before bottling unfined, unfiltered and cloudy by design.
Light orange/pink colour. Smoky tangerine opens the nose with orange sherbet. High notes of spice and florals – lavender, anise, sage, sandalwood. The palate shows a savoury line, very dry, with fleshy citrus and green herbs. A sweet sherbet lick kicks in before the long dry finish held together with racy acidity.
Best drunk fresh – with antipasti, charcuterie or pizza.
NOTE: The wine will drop harmless tartrate crystals if kept very cold, and will be cloudy/hazy at room temperature. These proteins are harmless although you may wish to settle the wine before pouring a big glass.
