2017 Patrick Sillivan Baw Baw Field
A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. Notes from Pat. The Chardonnay component is 50% of the blend. It is picked from a very low yielding south facing slope. Fermented and aged in a ceramic egg. These eggs are made in the style of the Schauberger cosmic egg. The Pinot Gris component is picked from a small holding on both the north and south facing sides of the vineyard. It is barrel fermented in old hogs heads. The Gewürztraminer was picked on a super muggy day from our Neerim South Vineyard. Barrel fermented in old French Hogs Heads. The wine is fresh as a new spring morning. Intense palate weight and bright peach and pineapple. The aroma seems to dance whilst in your mouth rather than punching out as the glass passes your nose. This wine will age well though I’m sure it wont last. Certainly very Moorish.
