2018 FREESTYLER

MARSANNE, SKIN CONTACT, LEES AGEING, TIGHT & TEXTURAL

SHIPPED FROM 1ST MARCH 2019

I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF BROADER, MORE TEXTURAL WHITES. FULL BODIED, A BIT WAXY, A BIT OXIDISED. IT GETS ME DREAMING I’M ON THE BEACH IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE SOMEWHERE, SAND BETWEEN MY TOES, LOOKING FAR MORE DASHING THAN I AM IN REAL LIFE. THEN I WOKE UP FROM THIS DAYDREAM AND I THOUGHT - HANG ON WE’VE NOW GOT SOME ESTABLISHED MARSANNE HERE IN THE BAROSSA, SO HEY, WHY NOT HAVE A GO AT A WINE TRULY MADE FOR MY TASTE.

SO JUST LIKE A FREESTYLER, NO FORM, NO SCRIPT - I THOUGHT I MIGHT LET THE GRAPES SIT IN THE BIN FOR A BIT, MAYBE SLEEP ON IT FOR A DAY OR TWO TO SEE HOW IT GOES. I APPLIED THE SAME THEORY AFTER FERMENT, LET IT FREESTYLE ON LEES UNTIL IT’S BOTTLED. TO BULD TEXTURE I JUST OCCASIONALLY DROVE THE BARRELS AROUND MY BUMPY WINERY YARD TO MIX UP THE LIGHT LEES.

SO WHEN IN NEED A LITTLE ESCAPE FROM REALITY, A LITTLE GLASS OF THIS WILL MAKE ME FLOAT AWAY IN MY OWN LITTLE WORLD.
