2018 George 'Shiraz and Skittles' Shiraz

Faraday, Victoria

The first batch of these juicy grapes were picked early, de-stemmed, fermented with some whole berries and pressed early to barrel. Lucy and Alice make all these choices to preserve the primary fruit freshness. Following a later pick at different location, there was a longer ferment period, allowing time for the wine to build structure, tannin and body. The wine is fresh on the palette, but maintaining a depth of aromas, prominent tannins and slight carbonic lift from being whole bunch pressed.

2018 George 'Shiraz and Skittles' Shiraz
About the maker

Lucy Kendall and Alice L'Estrange are the women breaking the mould in winemaking, producing exceptional minimal-intervention wines from well-farmed fruit in South Australia under the brand George.

Their mission - to celebrate what women can bring to independent winemaking and they sure live up to that vision. 'George' (Elliot) is a candid nod to creative women working in industries where they are underrepresented and a gentle call to arms.
