160.00

The 2017 Minim Floyd is the third time round the sun for this joyous and fruitful expression, refined on each take and influence generously by the vintage that was. This wine is built around a large ferment of destemmed south Heathcote Viognier and north Heathcote Grenache, in equal parts and picked within a day of each other. Both are grown by the enigmatic Steve Travers of Merindoc Vintners. An earlier pick of the Grenache was whole-bunch pressed as a higher acid Rose, fermented in barrel, whilst a later pick of riper fruit was fermented carbonically as whole bunches, aiming to lift fruit and offer textural contrast. The three wines were racked and blended to tank with a small sulphur addition. This is a lighter take on Floyd to previous years, as dictated by the vintage, yet it offers the most aromatically developed and exciting expression so far. A maverick Rose with vivid fruit and unexpectedly developed tannin.
