2019 2019 “Arancia”, Margaret River $35.00
Current Release

The 2019 ‘Arancia’ Must Ferment Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is must ferment, sking contact wine. The name ‘Arancia’ comes directly from the distinct orange colour achieved by this wine. Arancia means orange in Italian.

Basically, it is a white wine, made in the style of red wine. We chose to make a skin contact wine like this to continue our focus on producing food paired wines. Skin contact white wines are fantastic food wines, and show off other qualities of the grapes and terroir and winemaking than non-skin contact white wines.

Our ‘Arancia’ is an interesting wine and can be a polarising wine for those that prefer conventional style white wines. We have made a small batch to showcase the different style and add another colour of wine to our repertoire.

This wine is un-fined, and un-filtered. It was bottled with some lees in the bottle to keep providing that textural element we think makes this wine.

Both varietals for this blend were sourced from our organically farmed vineyard in Wallcliffe, Margaret River.

The ‘Arancia’ is a wild and open fermented blend of fruit which had 5 days of skin contact before being pressed to neutral French oak barriques and matured on lees for 6 months. This two varietals were co-fermented, with approximately 10% whole bunch.

This wine is unfined and coursely filtered so some traces of harmless residue may remain in the bottle.

In a glass this wine is a very pale orange colour.

Dominated by white flowers and gentle citrus aromatics.

The palate presents as a skinsey, textural wine with notes of pears, bitter herbs and a balanced level of acidity on the finish. A lighter tannin weight than one might achieve from a red wine, although notable tannins none the less.

We aim for minimal intervention to let the fruit express itself, yet there are certain things we do need to maintain the quality and integrity of this wine. We’ve added minimal sulphites to stabilise the wine and ensure its shelf life.
