|Wine||100% Grenache Blanc. The white version of Grenache is still rare in Australia but capable of beautifully textured, citrus laced wines of great drinkability. Organic fruit was hand-picked before whole bunch pressing and oxidative handling before a wild ferment in both concrete egg and used French barrels. No malolactic fermentation, and maturation on lees for 4 months, helped increase texture prior to bottling. Fined with bentonite, Vegan-friendly. Bright, tangy citrus laced fruit with hints of honeysuckle and lemon balm - different and utterly gorgeous!|
|Tasting Note||Citrus - Honeysuckle - Tangy|
