Yetti & the Kokonut - Hipster Juice (2021)

Yetti & the Kokonut - Hipster Juice (2021)

STAFF PICK

The name of the wine, coupled with the color, pretty much tells you everything you need to know. This is for the cool-kids and not meant to be a wine of too much thought but rather too many friends with whom this should be shared. Dave & Koen had the vision of a blank white canvas and having a lot of fun with heaps of colors. Some were painted with a brush, others by hand and a smattering of finger paints and even spray paint: Muscat, Verdejo, Cab Franc, Sémillon (of the red variety), and Sauvignon Blanc are the colors.

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.

Show this to anyone and say ‘here’s what fun natural wine looks like’ and it ticks the boxes. Sour, redolent cherries and not-quite-ripe raspberries on the nose with a drop of balsamic vinegar, expressive roses, other floral tones from the Muscat and a mouthfilling texture. It pops with fruit, loads of it, with an herbal twinge that leads to a gingery sort of spice thing going. It is wild for sure but you know what you’re getting into when it is aptly named ‘Hipster Juice’...drink it chilled.
