The Wine:
In an exciting development, fruit for this year’s Orange In Colour was sourced entirely from Ben and Naomi’s Quindalup vineyard (‘home’, as they call it). It’s an organic- and biodynamic-certified site, with typical soils of sand over pea gravel on a granite base.

This year’s blend is 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. Hand-harvested fruit fermented spontaneously on skins with plunging by hand for the first few days before pressing to tank and barrique. The wine went through full malolactic conversion.

From another excellent vintage for the region, the 2023 is an expressive, flavourful wine with lip-smacking intensity and juicy appeal.
