2019 Somos Naranjito
WINEMAKING: An orange wine from 100% Biodynamically farmed Verdelho, from a small vineyard in McLaren Flat. Destemmed and fermented on skins, 50% was pressed to old oak after 1 month and lees stirred fortnightly to build texture, 50% was sealed on skins for 180 days. The resulting orange wine is vibrant orange in colour, unfined and unfiltered so the wine has an appealing cloudiness. Heaps of ginger spice, baked pears and toffee apple aromatics, with a compelling full palate, textural and soft with brioche and caramel notes.
