TIM WILDMAN - 2019 Astro Bunny
This product is currently sold out.
Greeting you with floral and nectarine aromas, this Peachy-hued pet nat hops around your mouth in spritzy sploshes of summer fruits and flowers before disappearing down the rabbit hole. It’s an too–easy–to–drink wine with just the right amount of funk. Feels like a mouth massage. Drink ‘fridge cold.’
"The 2019 saw us entirely change the three vineyards we use for the Astro Bunny, and to mark the occasion we’ve refreshed the label to launch our beloved Bunny into space, where she belongs! The reasons for the vineyard changes were quality, quality, quality. We’ve moved to a stunning new premium vineyard in McLaren Vale for the Nero d’Avola (25%) owned by legendary viticulturist Sue Trott, to an immaculately managed 60 year old Zibibbo vineyard in the Loxton region of The Riverland called “Gums and Roses” and what was previously Vermentino is now Fiano from a vineyard specialising in Italian varieties in the cool climate Adelaide Hills. All the fruit was hand harvested between the 6th and 8th March, the Zibibbo was given 24 pre-ferment skin contact to extract greater aromatics, the Nero was taken from the press after just a few hours to provide colour and the three varieties were then co-fermented together." – Tim Wildman, MW
