2016 Arfion Fever
Fever is Arfion's own particular expression of Yarra terroir and the collisions of 2017
A colourful mix of pink and orange, Fever has a vibrant nose of rose petal, lychee and glazed cherry. It has a bright palate with a juicy texture and a hint of white tannin grip.
Sitting under the umbrella of orange or skin contact wine, it is a blend of 5 different varieties that are each perfect reflections of their site.
Pinot gris, Gewurtztraminer, Chardonnay, Semillon and a splash of Pinot noir from 4 vineyards that stretch across the Yarra.
Picking date for each variety was dictated by the site. Blended and co-fermented over a long 50 day ferment. Some white skins included.
100% wild ferment and malo. Old barrique aged without sulphur.
Bottled after 7 months with minimal sulphites added.
