Estate grown Sauvignon Blanc, farmed organically and made with 100% whole bunch carbonic maceration, and wild yeast fermentation for an orange wine. Free run and pressed juices are transferred to 500L French oak and acacia barrels for a period of five months. It is then bottled unfiltered. The winemaking ensures a complex and rich character with notes of apricots, ginger, cumin and fennel which combine on the palate with a subtle texture and fresh acidity. Serve with stir fried pak choi or pad thai.
Pyren is situated on an isolated patch of earth surrounded by state forest, farmland and the ever changing sky. Planted in 1999, established by brothers Brian & Kevyn Joy, and currently operated day to day by Graeme Miles in the Vineyard, and Leighton Joy in the winery. Pyren is farmed using organic principles and is currently in conversion to fully certified organic. The house style is to meld the expression of very high quality fruit with integrity and artistic freedom. The endeavour to fine tune the best style for Pyren`s fruit is a continuous one that knows no bounds.
