About

A tweak on variety here for the Brave New Wine Doppelgänger. The first two vintages were 100% Riesling but in the 2017 edition, a couple of other varieties enter the fray. After varying degrees of skin contact on each variety through ferment, Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay are aged in a combination of old barrels and ceramic eggs under a thing veil of flor. There's uber amounts of skinsy texture here. A faint nuttiness and something like kombucha. Served blind, this would be a very difficult wine to put your finger on. The tannins are tight, the acid it mouth watering, the volume of fruit is ample to all the winemaking thrown at it. It certainly won't be fore everyone, but it is a truly interesting drinking experience.

What it Tastes Like

It's tart and tangy with a pretty serious zing of acidity. But that's not all folks! There's nuts and a hint of fino, some kombucha on the nose and in the mouth amongst bracing citrus flavours. Long threads of tannin that crunch and chomp through the finish. Be warned, it's a wild ride!
