First Glance: Intense, Rich, Savoury, Dried Fruit

The Wine:
An orange wine from 100% Biodynamically farmed Viognier, from a small vineyard in Seaview, McLaren Vale overlooking the Gulf St Vincent. Picked late, for intensity. Destemmed and fermented on skins, 50% was pressed to old oak after 1 month and lees stirred fortnightly to build texture, 50% was sealed on skins for 200 days. The resulting orange wine is vibrant orange in colour, unfined and unfiltered so the wine has an appealing cloudiness.

Heaps of ginger spice, fresh Apricot, Peach, Honeydew and Cantaloupe, Mandarin peel, stewed stone fruits, and hints of dried apricots and white pepper on the nose, with a compelling full palate, textural and soft with apricot silkiness, honeydew crunch, rockmelon headiness and soft brioche and white pepper spice notes.
