A partnership with our Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Lower Murray wine growers, Burns & Fuller is a range of contemporary and fruit driven varietal wines made by Jim Zerella, Each wine is fruit-driven and balanced with a core of fruit given complexity by a barren aged component. Sourced from established vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The sheltered aspect and cold Autumn nights, courtesy of these higher altitude sites, combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The sheltered aspect and cold Autumn nights, courtesy of these higher altitude sites, combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.
Winemaking: Fruit is harvested during the early morning hours to retain freshness and partially whole bunch pressed. A fast and precise vinification in stainless steel with minimal oxygen contact maximises fruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before maturation on lees for four months. Twenty percent of the blend is aged in two and three year old French oak to increase complexity and mouthfeel.
Tasting Note: Pale yellow in colour with bright green highlights. The nose is fresh, crisp and primarily fruit-driven, showcasing white peach, citrus and cut apple aromas with just a hint of oak derived spice. The palate is equally delicate and precise with elegant stone fruit and pear flavours wrapped in crisp mineral acidity before a long, complex finish.
