2021 Patrick Sullivan Jumping Juice 'Yellow Yellow'
We're loving his take on Aussie Sauv Blanc, which here is raw and wild -- but squeaky clean and absolutely true to the varietal and place. The fruit is pristine, coming from a biodynamic farm in western Australia, in the Margaret River zone. He does it 100% whole bunch, carbonic and skin-contact, then throwing a curveball with the additon of Gewürztraminer which quietly softens the greeny Sauvignon Blanc character. The result is electric, with barely a whisper of SB's typical jalapeño spice balancing tropical pineapple and cream. Vibrant, fun, lip-smacking and refreshingly light for Australia - it’s like the wine version of a perfectly made, not sweet Piña Colada.
