A thought-provoking style of Gruner Veltliner than often seen throughout Australia.
White stonefruit, brioche, oystershells with a hint of white pepper. Medium-to-full-bodied texture, similar to a Ramen consistency. Fresh and soft acidity and gentle structured phenolics.
Bunch thinned and shoot trimmed. Conventionally farmed with drip irrigation. Picked in the cool of night, 18 hours of cold maceration on skins, pressed to tank, racked to barrel with light solids included. Wild fermentation in barrique (15% new) until dry, patrial malolactic fermentation (roughly 20%). 8 months on lees, 10 months total in barrique, 9 months bottle age.
A modern, cutting-edge collection of wines - just look at the labels - from the passionate and slightly bonkers trio of Dylan and Justin Fairweather and winemaker Sam Berketa. AB&D was founded in McLaren Vale in 2008 and is unconventional in its approach; there are no ‘regional, varietal or stylistic’ boundaries, just great wines from great fruit.
The plan is to craft a different wine for every letter of the alphabet - from Apostle (Shiraz-Durif blend) to Zaptung (crown-capped Prosecco). Each wine is unique and has a story and eye-catching label to go with it. A fab collection of wines that a causing quite a buzz in the wine scene.
Perfect with white flesh fish, oysters, chicken, pork – any white meat!
