About The Wine

Anthony Fikkers cares not about the status quo, and his creative Yarra Valley wines have really caught our attention.

This is his take on a 'Bordeaux Blanc', and really challenges convention with how this style often looks. It's made in tiny quantities (70 doz total) with minimal intervention and precious little additions. The blend of 50% Sauvignon blanc, 39% Semillon and 11% Muscadelle brings a new face to the classic dry white.

It's complex yet smashable, familiar yet challenging and great either with food or on its own for something a little different. With 93 points from Gary Walsh and his comments that it "feels at ease with itself, is interesting and drinks beautifully" this is a must try!

DDS review

Feels sort of fleshy in the mouth, all citrus pulp and skin with some blossoms from the trees they were picked from. There is a slight hebaceousness to the nose but a lovely freshness on the palate. SBS with a twist. Intriguing little number.

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

"50% Sauvignon blanc, 39% Semillon, 11% Muscadelle from the Brittania Creek Vineyard (Wesburn) planted in 1980. The only addition to the wine is minimal sulphur dioxide. 70 dozen. Nice juiciness to this wine – all oranges, floral and grassy perfume, lime and pineapple also has a kind of creamy oatmeal flavour and texture with it too. Light chalkiness, fresh but subdued acidity, lovely bright limey finish of admirable length. As with most Fikkers wines, feels at ease with itself, is interesting and drinks beautifully."
