This skin contact white wine is made up of five grape varieties- Semillon, White Frontignac, Riesling, Grenache & Mataro.
The White Frontignac was grown by Greg Barritt, down at Rowland Flat towards the southern end of the Barossa Valley. The other 4 varieties were grown their own vineyards around their Cellar Door.
The gentle extraction of phenolic molecules (tannins, aroma and colour) occurs by treating these white grapes like a red wine which in this case meant 5 days on skins. It brings complexity and mouthfeel that is both enticing and refreshing by bringing the gentle acidity to the forefront.
This wine spent 4 weeks in neutral Hungarian oak.
