About The Beer

Style: Wild Ale
Format: 750ml Bottle
Australian Wild Ale made for the 2019 Terroir Project Festival conceptualised and hosted by Firestone Walker Brewing Company. A fermentation of golden wort with and by hand harvested Semillon bunches from Tyrrell’s Estate in Pokolbin, NSW.
Johnno's Semillon hand harvested in January 2021, fermentation and maceration on whole fruit for 9 months before extended 5 month elevage in 500 litre puncheon barrels before bottling in March 2022.
Serious nose, big depth and fruit expression. Skinsy grape, pear and apple skin. Toasted biscuity oak, vanillin and candied fruits. The palate is savoury... marmalade, pineapple and baked peaches. Citrus shines on the back palate in tandem with oak and phenolic grape derived grip. Despite the weight of flavour it finishes clean and compactly.
