Yetti & The Kokonut El Doradillo White Wine 2021, Barossa Valley, South Australia

Yetti & the Kokonut El Doradillo is an orange wine made from an obscure Spanish variety. Doradillo is at its best when the acid drops the slightest bit at harvest as the heady and intense fruit notes are ‘mezzo forte’. Musky peachy nose, hits of freshly cut mint (organically grown linger on the back pallet. White Peach and Citrus are also present. Grippy first start with exotic components stepping in to calm down the tannins, soft mid structure with smooth sailing freshness in the end. 100% Doradillo from the southern Barossa picked at the end February. 1/3 destemmend, 1/3 whole bunch and 1/3 straight press and back over the other fruit, teabag style. Fermented dry on skins. We kept it like this for about 5 months. Pressed to stainless and bottled a month later.
