Villa Creek wines are made with grapes grown on our home estate, MAHA, and with grapes from vineyards that meet our growing criteria of being certified organic and/or biodynamic or practicing organic farming methods. We have strong relationships with our growing partners and confidence that their farming practices meet Real Organic standards.
In order to truly capture the vintage, we let the grapes do the work as we facilitate optimal fermentation conditions. All clusters and grapes are hand picked and double sorted by hand on our vibrating sorting tables. About 20% of our grapes are fermented on stems. These clusters are double sorted. Our winery is a Demeter biodynamic certified facility. As biodynamic standards allow for minimal sulfur use and organic yeasts, these are used only when required, not as common practice. Our preference is always to allow the our unique native yeasts the opportunity to flourish.
This wine is firing on all cylinders at the moment but will age gracefully for 10-20 years.
Notes of orange marmalade, apricot and brioche tee up a generous palate of honey drizzled pear finished with a pinch of sea salt that transcends to a focused thread of minerality and freshness.
The 2019 Bone White is wonderful balance of richness and tension. It is a wine for all seasons. Drink it cold on a warm summer day or at cellar temp on a cool winter night.
