2015 Yetti and the Kokonut Sercial

Sercial is a light-skinned Portuguese grape variety better known for its role in making some of the world's finest dry Madeira fortified wines. Minimal amounts of Sercial are grown in Australia, the grapes here coming from the Eden Valley. 

This wine is a product of winemaker friends Dave Geyer and Koen Janssens from the Geyer Wine Co. My guess is that Dave is the Yetti and Koen, the Kokonut on their quirky label but that's besides the point with this u
nfiltered, sustainably-produced wine.    

Mid-yellow gold colour with slight cloudiness from the skin contact. It's the archetypal orange wine.
Fresh pine needles, prune, honey, apple and almond-like aromas. Subtle, not overly perfumed.
On a light-bodied palate there are flavours of crisp yellow apples, apple cider and stewed prunes.
Dry, good acid and grippy tannins with a smooth and brine-like savouriness to the finish.    

Good wine, certainly left of centre and different from the usual suspects.
