Brave New Wine - 2020 Magical Animal
"Single vineyard Porongurup chardonnay pressed straight into one new, one second use and one older French oak puncheons. Organic inputs only. Not certified. 100% Natural ferment. Left on full solids with zero additions for 11 months then racked to tank to settle for two more months until bottling, with only very a small addition of SO2, no fining or filtration.
Bright golden straw colour. ‘Sunrise on the golden walls of El Dorado’ says Yoko. She’s ace at tasting notes and this wine is her favourite. Smells sexy – fresh ginger, pink grapefruit, white peach, petrichor. It’s pouting, it’s all things feminine and complex and delicate, but there is an underlaying feeling of power and structure from the zing of acid, like being whipped with lace, just below the surface.– Brave New Wine
