Story

+

The Wightmare; the mythical horse that you can ride into another dimension; that transient beast that can transport you into another world. An evocative notion, but what of the wine?

We like to think that the AB&D Wightmare can also transport you into another world; one of crisp delicious aromas and flavours and effortless pourmeanotherglassness. A wine that not only slakes the thirst, but proves an able companion at the dining table, matching all manner of dishes and promoting discourse between family, friends and lovers.

Think of it as the medium to transport you between the tedium of everyday drinking and the land of Alpha Box & Dice.

Winemaking

+

Picked from two Blewitt Springs vineyards featuring white sand over limestone soil, Wightmare Chardonnay was machine picked, destemmed, oxidatively handled with a medium pressing cycle, inoculated with a neutral yeast and fermented until dry. It was then matured for six months on lees in tank with weekly lees stirring.
