Tabula Rasa White

Wild & Wilder is all about good clean fun. Working hand in hand with their merry (in a good season) band of growers, they craft wines of supreme quality but don't take it all too seriously.

Great fruit, grown by great people and made with a lot of love by people that know that wine is all about the good times, delicious food and creating great memories. Founded by Giles Cooke MW & Fergal Tynan MW, who also make the Thistledown wines, the mundane is just not in their DNA. Being involved in every stage of the winemaking process from bud burst to bottle means that every bottle from Wild & Wilder is an experience you"„¢ll want to try again.

Viticulture

All four varieties that make up #V18W comes from the same, single vineyard close to our winery in Lenswood, Adelaide Hills. A close planted, premium vineyard perfectly set up for cool climate viticulture. Vertical shoot positioning on a 2 wire system, shoot and fruit thinning where necessary followed by hand picking for careful selection.

Vinification

A complex vinification in order to make a deliciously simple wine. Both the Sauvignon and Semillon are given 24 hours skin contact before crushing, pressing, settling and cool, fermentation. The Arneis and Petit Manseng were hand-picked, foot crushed, drained and added to the larger ferment which prolonged the ferment and added complexity and texture. Post primary fermentation, the wine was racked off gross lees before spending 2 months on fine lees prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

A seasonal white that reflects the character of the vintage in a delicious, textural style. Aromas of quince, preserved lemon and barley lead through to a zesty palate of citrus, elderflower, stone fruits and almond.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
