2022 Yetti and the Kokonut Bubbles13593
WINEMAKER: Dave Geyer & Koen Janssens
REGION: McLaren Vale, SA
"Sunshine and happiness in a glass. Feels like driving a Mercedes SL on the great ocean road during a beautiful sunny day. 100% certified organic fruit from Mclaren Vale. Picked early February and pressed to tank. Cold settled (for all the bits in the juice to drop out). We seperate a few litres and froze them to add back later after the ferment was sugar dry. When the frozen juice was added again, we bottled and created a mini second ferment in bottle that created bubbles." - 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.
