2023 'Fedora Tipper' Orange
This is a wine to take to the park with your fedora and bocce set. Uncles welcome!
It's pure apricots in a glass with heaps of stonefruit, bruised apple and these lovely, light, chalky tannins that hold it all together.
I requested a painting of this specific hat from Kate Lewis as I firmly believe Fedoras will be making a strong resurgence in the coming years and I would like to show my advocacy early, be ahead of that curve and part of the movement.
50% Marsanne & 50% Grenache Blanc spent 10 days on the skins extracting colour and the light tannins we look for in orange wine. The blend then spent 2 months in neutral French oak to add to the wine's complexity.
