About the Producer
A modern, cutting-edge collection of wines - just look at the labels - from the passionate and slightly bonkers trio of Dylan and Justin Fairweather and winemaker Sam Berketa. AB&D was founded in McLaren Vale in 2008 and is unconventional in its approach; there are no ‘regional, varietal or stylistic’ boundaries, just great wines from great fruit.
The plan is to craft a different wine for every letter of the alphabet - from Apostle (Shiraz-Durif blend) to Zaptung (crown-capped Prosecco). Each wine is unique and has a story and eye-catching label to go with it. A fab collection of wines that a causing quite a buzz in the wine scene.
Vineyard and Winery
The Semillon was handpicked, destemmed and plunged by hand, fermented until dry using native yeast. 3 weeks total skin maceration. Riesling was picked with >65% Botrytis affected grapes, pressed for 3 hours long and slow, wild fermented for 4 months in old barrels until dry, spontaneously going through full MLF. Semillon spent 12 months in barrique on full lees, Riesling spent 12 months in old oak then blended together for a further 12 months maturation in foudre.
