Yetti & the Kokonut - Project Wine (2020)
60% riesling, 40% red semillon
100% whole bunch for the riesling for about 3 weeks. Pressed to stainless. The red semillon was 5 days on skins and then pressed to ceramic egg until fermented dry.
Brought together couple of weeks before bottling
Funny how the nose is “classic” riesling country, Brought mouth feel with riesling sailing like a boat on a turbulent sea, smooth finish with rolling lemon tones that just keeps going and going and going
About the Winemaker:
Dave Geyer and Koen Janssens are the Yetti and the Kokonut. These two high-octane, talented young winemakers have partnered up to produce some truly original and thrilling wines from sustainable vineyards across South Australia.
A friendship turned into a balanced wine making partnership, Yetti who manages the vineyards and Koko who does the sale side off the business. Together they make the wine. Strongly believing that it all starts in the vineyard, Yetti and the Kokonut always farm, co farm or have a strong input into the vineyards they take fruit from. The name Yetti and the Kokonut comes form our nicknames given during vintage. These wines are colourful, flavourful and a little tongue in cheek. Best served with good friends and plenty of good vibes.
