STORY

+

The DWS is the wine we make to pay tribute to those inspirational members of the wine world. This style was inspired by the passing of Stanislao 'Stanko' Radikon, one of the pioneers of the orange/amber wine revolution, in 2016, hence the initials S.R. on the back label. This is a true orange wine, white grapes fermented on their skins, extended skin contact and ageing in oak for over 18 months.

WINEMAKING

+

Machine picked in the early morning, de-stemmed and fermented with native yeasts until dry with a week of extended maceration making three weeks of total skin contact time.

TASTING NOTES

+

LOOKS LIKE... Amber

SMELLS LIKE... Exotic tropical fruits – apricot, peaches, mangoes, with grassy herbs and crushed pine needles.

TASTES LIKE... Zinging acidity that is supported through dusty velvety tannins that leaves the mouth watering.

DRINK WITH... Pork belly, dumplings or poultry of any kind.
