Jumpin' Juice, Sunset
Sort of a rosé, sort of an orange wine, definitely a stunner. All three grape varieties spend some time on their skins, so it's a rose/orange Frankenwine.
Juicy and playful, loaded with tropical and red fruit, this is a fruit punch that we want to drink while watching the sunset.
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Shiraz
Place: Yarra Valley, Australia
Jumpin' Juice is a pet project of Xavier Goodridge, a natural winemaker in Gippsland, Victoria. He's developed a bit of a cult following, and so the Jumpin' Juice project is for fans of his vibrant styles. They're fun and funky wines to be drunk right now, without worrying about ageing potential or any seriousness of the industry.
