Fin Wines, Elton
Handpicked Chardonnay then pressed directly into their favourite tank Elton, a tall thin stainless steel tank resembling a rocket. Elton kept the wine tight and fresh, whilst limiting contact with the ferment lees it sat on. Bright and frisky. Grapefruit zest, cashew nut, crisp lingering acidity with a touch of oyster shell
Place: Yarra Valley, Australia
Fin Wines is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, who are the Traditional Owners and custodians of this land. They recognise their continuing connection to land, water, and culture. Fin Wines, a fermentation collective, launched in January 2020 with a range of wines, ciders and piquettes. Fin Wines is producing young, fresh and most importantly fun drinks with an emphasis on drinkability. We are doing this a very lo-fi way in terms of minimal additions, no filtering, spontaneous fermentation, with minimal faffing in the winery.
