Jumping Juice Yellow (750ml)
Jumpin Juice is a collaboration between long-time friends and now Gippsland-based winemakers, Patrick Sullivan and Xavier Goodridge. Both have amassed their own loyal followings for high-quality lo-fi wines made from top quality fruit. With Jumpin Juice they are free to explore parcels of fruit from all over the country – not just within their own G.I.; though the winery is located in Gippsland, Victoria. These are fun, playful wines made with little to no additions built in a ‘drink-me-now’ style. Perfect picnic wines here for good times in the sun.
This is a fresh and juicy wine that bursts with tropical fruit aromas and flavours. Ripe pineapple and lemon curd abound on the palate. The wine exudes an electric energy making it easy drinking and very refreshing. The finish is crisp and dry. Enjoy on its own as an aperitif, with summer salads or Thai food.
The grapes come from Mike Sleggers, a certified-biodynamic grower in Margaret River (Western Australia). The Sauvignon Blanc spends 15 days as whole bunches, at low temperature. Once the fermentation starts, the grapes are pressed in order to keep as much primary aromatics and fruitiness, and the must then ferments spontaneously in tanks. Blended with the Gewurztraminer and bottled unfined, unfiltered, with a small amount of SO2.
