Keep it natural, baby.
60% riesling, Stonegarden vineyard, Spington Eden Valley. Picked mid February.
40% red semillon, Kuitpo Adelaide Hills. Picked end of February (had some noble botrytis).
100% whole bunch for the riesling for about 3 weeks. Pressed to stainless. The red semillon was 5 days on skins and then pressed to ceramic egg until fermented dry. Brought together couple of weeks before bottling.
Funny how the nose is “classic” riesling country, brought mouth feel with riesling sailing like a boat on a turbulent sea, smooth finish with rolling lemon tones that just keeps going and going and going.
A wine (like the egg wine) that will change every year with what’s available.
The world has given us many dynamic duos, Batman & Robin, Sonny & Cher, the adding of Milo to milk...enter Yetti & The Kokonut. David Geyer and Koen Janssens met in 2015 and set forth to experiment with grapes in exciting new ways, think of it as drinking outside of the box. With their feet in the vineyards and their tongues in their cheek, a new breed of wines were created that unlike your sketchy friend, needed minimal intervention. These creations have finally escaped the laboratory and and are now available right here. Pour decisions? Step right this way...
