About The 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.
This funky young label is the brainchild of Craig Turnbull and Anthony Pearce.
Gestalt (meaning an organised whole considered to be greater than the sum of its parts) is about balanced, youthful wines sourced from small organically grown vineyards around South Australia.
Whether it is whacky blends of uncool varieties such as Savagnin and Petit Manseng or pure single vineyard, single varietal expression, there is something about these wines which make you want to keep coming back for more!
