2022 Yetti and the Kokonut El Doradillo13592
WINEMAKER: Dave Geyer & Koen Janssens
REGION: Barossa Valley, SA
"Structural white wine. Umami galore with hints of peach and nectarine. 100% Doradillo from Williamstown. An old variety, commonly used it the fortified industry. Picked in the end of February. Made a ferment off 1/3 destemmend fruit, 1/3 of whole bunch fruit and 1/3 straight press juice over it. Left on skins for about 5 months. Bottles one month late" - Dave & Koko
Yetti And The Kokonut is the partnership between two friends, who also happen to be respected lo-fi leaning winemakers in their own right. David Geyer, of Barossa’s Geyer Wine Co. assumes the role of Yetti, along with vineyard management duties. Koen Janssens, the Belgian winemaking import/sommelier behind Bink Wines, also goes by the name of ‘Koko’ to his friends.
This is a collaboration born from friendship and an inquisitive spirit. They are purposefully colourful, juicy and lip-smacking – perfect to splash around with friends. Saying that, their expertise and knowledge of lo-fi winemaking techniques like skin-contact, ceramic egg and large format maturation mean there is plenty of interest and complexity to make it a thought-provoking quaff.
