2020 Wildflower Waratah
Notes from Topher...
A collaboration between the grain farmers [Organically Greenwood, (Coleambally, NSW)] maltsters [Voyager Malt (Whitton, NSW)], hop farmers [Ryefield Hops (Bemboka, NSW)] and two breweries committed to agricultural beer, Batch Brewing Company and ourselves. Our release of this beer in 2017 marked the first commercial release of a beer made entirely of NSW ingredients, the 2020 vintage marks the fourth. At release, it has savoury aromatics, biscuity, dried citrus peel. Warm French oak gives a strong and exceptionally complex aged vinous character. Wonderful palate. Smooth and seamless. Sweet vanilla cake, almond meal, preserved lime, dehydrated orange run rampant. As the acidity draws the palate along the beer shows more vinous notes. Complete and perfectly balanced.
