Les Fruits is the wine making project of Tim Stock, not only a great friend of ours but hugely respected figure on the Australian wine landscape as a trailblazing sommelier, wine importer and wine maker.
This is summer in a bottle, mostly Sauvignon from the hills with Chardonnay and Sauvignon from McLaren blended in after a wee ferment on skins. Nope not a traditional blend and damn delicious for it.
It's an orange hue to be sure, Cotties orange cordial on the nose with some herbs and spice, orange and mango juice backed by lemon and grapefruit to keep it taught and the skin tannins coming in to bring it home dry. Luscious and juicy with just the right amount grip.
