About

Crittenden Estate boldly takes on the famous Vin Jaune wine style here and knocks it out of the park.

This is Savagnin fermented naturally, aged in barrel under flor for four years before release. No additions were made at any point, the veil of live yeast acting as the juice’s only protection against the outside world.

This is the best example of the Vin Jaune wine style made anywhere in Australia currently. The closest home-grown thing to the much heralded ‘yellow’ wines of Jura.

In his rousing 96 point review, Mike Bennie closes with this, “Superb. Tear in eye stuff. Go Australia.”

If you are a fan of this unique, nutty, salty and creamy wine style, it’s time to get excited. This is brilliant stuff.

What It Tastes Like

“Remarkably good here. Deep perfume reminiscent of sea spray, grilled nuts, fino sherry, mustard powder, savoury, minerally, brilliant. Power and concentration in the palate, more of the saline tang, brittle acidity, grilled nuts, apple and dried apple flavours. It’s magnificent if you like this ilk of wine, balanced, full, flavoursome, intense and refreshing at once. Superb. Tear in eye stuff. Go Australia.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
