Balmy Nights - 2021 Amber

2021 Amber

Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris
Hilltops, NSW

An amber wine for everyone. Even your dad. Tropical fruits, including guava and passionfruit, tango in your mouth as you contemplate a post-lockdown paradise. Ahhh........

75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Pinot Gris, armed organically (though not certified) in Hilltops, NSW. Wild fermented separately without adjustments; the Pinot Gris component remained on skins for 2 weeks in stainless steel and left to its own devices, whilst the Sauvignon Blanc was on skins for 16 days, seeing pump overs occur twice daily for the first week, and then left to macerate for the remainder of time on skins. Both parcels were pressed, blended and returned to stainless where the resulting wine remained on lees for 5 months before bottling. Unfined, unfiltered and minimal sulphites added at closure.
