Winery/Brand: Krinklewood


The 2010 Wild White is a blend of Semillon, Verdelho & Chardonnay. Pale straw with a green hue, this wine has a lifted nose of citrus blossom and freshly cut grass with ripe melon layers. Citrus and orange blossom carry onto the palate and are layered with soft luscious fig characters. With well balanced fruit sweetness and natural zesty acid, this is a wine that can easily be enjoyed on its own or with food.



The Story

FRUIT: The 2010 vintage commenced with a wet winter followed by a reasonably hot Spring. There was a spectacular storm on Nov 22nd; nestled in the valley Krinklewood fared well and there was no overall damage to fruit. The hot weather continued from late November right through to late January, prompting another early start to harvest, which commenced on Jan 27th with the Semillon and Jan 28th for Verdelho. The Chardonnay was slightly later, harvested on Feb 4th. All fruit was picked at perfect timing with the right pH, fruit flavour and baume.

WINEMAKING: After the fruit was crushed, the free run juice was fermented in Stainless Steel tanks under cool conditions. Final blending took place just prior to bottling which was done early to retain freshness of the primary fruit characters.

CUISINE: The perfect accompaniment to a light lunch of barbequed chicken breast with green bean & cherry tomato salad.
