Yetti & the Kokonut - El Doradillo (2020)
100% Doradillo from the southern Barossa picked at the end February. 1/3 destemmend, 1/3 whole bunch and 1/3 straight press and back over the other fruit, teabag style. Fermented dry on skins. We kept it like this for about 5 months. Pressed to stainless and bottled a month later. Musky peachy nose, hits of freshly cut mint (organically grown ;-) ) linger on the back pallet. Grippy first start with exotic components stepping in to calm down the tannins, soft mid structure with smooth sailing freshness in the end.
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.
