Orange buttercake & praline.

Mouth

Leading on from the aromas, stonefruit, apricot kernel, cassata & subtle almond characters appear on the palate. Equally notable is the rich yet seamless texture; the juicy, creamy mid palate leads to a refreshing silken finish.

Winemaking Notes

A second vintage wine for Blue Pyrenees Estate, UBF is a skin contact white blend (or ‘orange’ wine) made from both the oldest & youngest vines in the Estate vineyard. Originally planted to produce brandy, the Ugni Blanc (or Trebbiano) fruit was blended with a small Fiano vineyard located just outside the cellar door.

Unusually for a white wine, UBF spends nine months on skins with natural primary & secondary fermentation. A final six months in oak leads to a full integration of the wine’s characters & a greater natural clarity. These extended maceration & minimal input techniques combined with zero filtration have produced an interesting, textural & full flavoured wine.
