Bobar Yarra Valley Melange a Trois 2019
Another Tommy Belford specialty. Funky little number with lashings of exuberant tropical fruit notes and that sophisticated early picked freshness and cleanliness that our little mate is becoming famous for. Tom has become a bit of a demigod of the natural wine scene and for good reason too. He has worked out how to not intervene and get away with it. Textural blend of 60% Semillon with Riesling and Gewurztraminer adding finesse and suppleness. Wild-fermented in inert old large format oak. A touch of extra maceration has added a very useful amount of texture without getting in the way of all of that flavour then it’s finished off with only the tiniest bit (because of the early pick Tom can use a lot less to get the job done, it’s all about pH kids) of necessary sulphite.
