Notes provided by winemaker, James Madden:
Certified Biodynamic Verdelho was handpicked and whole bunch direct pressed to tank. Skins from 21 varieties “Les Petits Reins” vineyard in Basket Range (Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Savagnin, Verdelho, Arneis, Gris, Aramon Noir, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, I am four varieties short) where added to the tank and macerated for 2 weeks. Gently pressed then left to settle in tank. Racked to a 7 year old barrique and hogshead to rest on fine lees. Bottled with no additions.
Wildly aromatic! Ripe stone fruits, rhubarb and red apple and a gentle ginger like spice on the finish. Weird and wonderful!
