Muddy Water Skin Ferment White 2020 Waipara
Deep orange colour,with complex oriental flavours of mandarin, clove, citrus peel and bergamot. Textural, plush palate with firm tannins. Exotic!
This co-ferment is made of fruit grown on our lower back block vineyard in Omihi with 48% Riesling, 46 % Gewurtztraminer, 2 % Gruner Veltliner, 2% St Laurent and 2 % Chardonnay, all grown organically. The fruit was intensely managed, bunch thinned, and shoot positioned for fruit spacing and leaf plucked to allow sunlight and air into the canopy. Bunches were small, intensely flavoured, pure and were hand-picked to retain ultimate freshness and allow whole bunch ferment.
