Take 3 of the From Sunday’s project, where the team take one parcel of fruit and produce it with three different vinification techniques; in this case, with full skin contact.
The fruit was sourced from a single organically farmed vineyard 920 metres above sea level in Orange. Yup, an orange wine from Orange! The grapes in this take were essentially treated like a red wine, kept as whole bunches for fermentation to extract colour and structure. It’s essentially a blanc de noir - it’s really a very vibrant purple. Serve slightly chilled, and enjoy the fizzy strawberry flavours - ooh it’s good. With this skins bottling, you can certainly see the similarity with Pinot Noir.. no surprise really, given Pinot Gris is a mutant of the Noir version!
From Sundays brings a winemaker (James), a viticulturist (Sam) and a branding guru (Dave) together to make some truly epic Aussie wine. The combination of top rate minimal intervention wine making, the best fruit in South Australia from organically farmed sites and killer packaging combines into some of the most exciting wine to come out of Australia today. And it’s not exactly a static market!
