Peaches, 2019

Grower: Manon
Region: Adelaide Hills, Australia
Grape Varieties: Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
Viticulture: Biodynamic
Size: 75cl bottle

Easily one of our favourite Australian wine projects, Manon finds itself nestled at a cool 600 metre altitude off the Forest Range, welcoming cool breezes from the gulf and fully diurnal temperatures. The vines are surrounded by woodland, giving them much-needed shade from the hot Aussie heat in the summers, while adding to the already-prominent biodiversity featured on the farm. For Peaches, all the white varietals grown are cofermented, with part destemmed and part in whole bunches. The grapes are left on their skins for 10 days, giving a wonderful expressiveness to the otherwise ethereal, delicate fruit character.
