‘A Boy with Fruit’ 2015 White Grape Blend – case

$456.00 $264.00

Its incredible dried apricot and white floral nectar aromatics give way to a lush, juicy lemon barley sugar confectionery on the palate which seriously rocks.

The palate still carries both the varietal Bitey-lemonade from the Semillon and the spiciness of the stems, which you get on the finish, but meshes beautifully with the oily-Stone Fruit of the Viognier. Very pleased with this first attempt.

Description

”A Boy with Fruit’ 2015 White Grape Blend from Mudgee combines Viognier and Semillon grapes.

This is a single vineyard, double-fermented, whole berry fermented white wine. It wasn’t de-stemmed, or chilled – and there were no additives or yeast additions.

The Viognier is from the Rylestone NSW DeBeaurepaire Vineyard, in April. It was fermented dry on skins and stems for 9 days, all wild fermented, then when pressed off into tank there was 180 – 200 litres of space in the tank .. So I went back out to the Vineyard, where there was some very late, super ripe juicy Semillon – that tasted like a subtle lemon sorbet .. and I hand de-stemmed the fruit into the tank till I filled it up. The tank bubbled and toiled away over winter til late November and was bottled minimal filtered/fined.

1 case = 12 bottles.
