The River Blend is stunning! my absolute favourite. Raw and earthy, a perfect reflection of where it was created.

A toast to the Indigenous families that lived by the river on this land before the Krinklewood family. They too believed the river and mountains held a special nurturing force. We have made this wine again from Gewurztraminer and Verdelho, as a skin contact white wine without pre bottling fining.
This wine is a pretty soft peach colour.
Bright floral aromas give way to lychee, turkish delight and cinnamon shouldered with fresh minerality
- Winemaking Notes
The Gewurztraminer and Verdelho fruit was hand picked and blended together in the initial stage of this wines journey. The grapes fermented dry entirely on skins (with 20% whole bunches) and partial carbonic maceration. After two weeks of slow fermentation, the wine was pressed off in the Basket Press & cold settled in the tank before bottling early to retain primary fruit characters & texture. The wine was unfined & unfiltered to keep all the beautiful aromatics and colour that Gewurztraminer is so famous for.
