Golden Mullet Fury

StoryFashion is cyclical but some things are forever. For us, the Golden Mullet will always be rooted in that special notion.
Taking you back to a time when burly Eastern European winemakers with furious haircuts were concocting some of the most inspiring ‘amber wines’ anyone had seen. In the wake of those Georgian heroes and heroines, the first shoots of our own Golden Mullet Fury began to show. From one of the oldest wine-producing countries in the world to our own experimental corner of the winery.
Like every enduring movement, the wine has grown up, and us with it. Wild as ever, the cryptic allure of skin-contact winemaking becomes a little more coherent every time.
This year it evolved some more. Structure and richness of Semillon, fruit brightness and acid lick of Muscat, and a splash of Botrytis Riesling for that business-up-front, party-in-the-back affair.
12 years on with our Golden Mullet Fury flourishing, these are the results that inspire us to keep going. Raised in a large-format cask and old oak barriques, it’s lively and energetic with a burst of tangy fruits, giving way to that signature waxiness and saline feel.
Better and more distinguished. An unmistakable orange wine that’s larger than life.
Unchanged yet highly evolved.
