- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Sunburst is a walk on the wild side of Chenin Blanc.
There’s a fair amount of creativity behind this wine. Winemakers Anthony Pearce and Craig Turnbull removed the top from a single barrel, stuffed it half with whole bunches and half with whole berries than filled it to the top with juice and sealed it.
A year later it was pressed and sent back to barrel for a further two years. It is a white wine made like a red. An extreme case study in the effects of oxidization and whole bunch ferment on a white.
The result is freaky and phenomenally good to drink.
What It Tastes Like
Caramel and toffee on roasted nuts. It has a saline theme running throughout. The fruit flavours are in the realm of dried apples and critus but it’s the glycerol mouthfeel, supreme grip and sappy characters that really are the big ticket items here. Very interesting wine. It’s got tannin and guts and stalk and green tinges. Wicked ride of a wine.
Grown in the Barossa Valley in accordance with organic principals.
Top knocked off barrel and half filled with whole bunches, half with whole berries. Topped with juice and closed left for 12 months, then pressed off back into barrel for a further 2 years before bottling. Minimal sulphur.
