Organically grown at Yin Barun Vineyard just outside Benalla in North East Victoria.
Maximum flavour and a blushing orange hue, achieved through deliberate juice maceration with skins before pressing to tank. The natural fermentation was very slow, and provided ample opportunity for building texture with plenty of lees contact.
More Gris than Grigio, if we have to pick sides. The aim for Little Frances is a pursuit of deliciousness and hedonistic pleasure, rather than comply with the rigidity of a traditional category or definition.
This wine is undoubtedly a pleasure to share, but not half bad consumed in isolation.
