Wild yeast, meet barrel ferment. A hugely complex bouquet, heady with pineapple, white flowers, honey and spice. 18 months on full lees in 50% new oak has resulted in a rich, and textural palate, underpinned by fresh preserved lemon acidity, and a slight savouriness to complement the tropical notes. Everything you already love about our Fumé Blanc, but elevated.
The high altitude of the Kuitpo vineyard in the Southern Adelaide Hills is ideal for this variety. Allowing slower ripening and giving complexity and elegance. Shallow, well drained soils also allow full concentration of flavours in the fruit and a mineral acidity crucial for this style of wine.
This full-bodied wine is bold enough to stand up to fattier fish, and retains enough zesty acidity to cut through pork and poultry dishes. Try it with crispy roast pork & tangy slaw.
Built to last, this wine will continue to develop opulent secondary characters until 2032.
