PRODUCER: A love of wine, food and growing things eventually led Gareth and Rainbo away from a vastly different background involving scuba gear and seaweed. Their winery is situated in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills where they try to intervene as little as possible in the growing and making of the wines. They farm a number of small parcels in Basket Range, Forest Range and Ashton. They don’t like to define their styles or wine making techniques, just make wine in the way they feel is right for the grapes and season and most importantly, with maximum drinkability and enjoyment in mind.
WINEMAKING: The majority is a cofermentation/maceration of Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer for six days before pressing to stainless steel. There's also a separate rolling ferment of Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Riesling that spends a few weeks on skins before pressing to old oak. After five months the wines is blended and finally, some red pressings are added to give some colour and boom, Rainbow Juice is born!
TASTING NOTES: A new direction for Rainbow Juice from this release onwards but with the same philosophy at its core; loads of skin contact, juicy acidity and aromatic deliciousness.
