About The Wine
Jared Dixon comes with a White Wolf of Cumbria amber wine this year. It's about time...
He takes Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer, ferments them together in old barrels on skins, then bottles it unfined and unfiltered.
It's full flavoured, packed with super intense aromatics and succulent fruit, it's a 'training wheels' style of amber, and perfect for those looking to get their first look t what orange or amber wines are all about.
Only a couple of hundred dozen made. It's fresh, it's clean, it's got the wildness dialled up just enough to make it exciting to drink. It's delicious.
About Jilly Wines
Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.
His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine. They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.
Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.
