Out of Step Wines Margin Walker 2015
This wine is more about place than variety according to the winemaker, so the variety is not stated. He wanted to make a wine to be enjoyed without the preconceptions that come with a stated variety.
The fruit is from the Lusatia Park Vineyard in the upper Yarra, which is whole bunch pressed to French Oak barrique, undergoes wild ferment and then left on lees in barrel for 5 months. Sharp, crisp and clean, grapefruit, cut grass, integrated oak, a light smokiness, pomelo, and stone fruit. Great length, body and weight. Spectacular wine that is evocative of a Pouilly-Fumé. Only 264 bottles!
