"For the '22 we left the beer on skins for just one month. I'd usually leave it longer hoping to extract as much as possible flavour out of every last grape skin but this year I tried out going shorter and pulling the volume of beer to skins in and letting the concentration of skins do the work." - Topher
"Huge aromas, candied citrus, apricots and melon dominate the nose. There’s spice, orange peel and a nutty savoury element alongside a funky edge. Broader and fuller than previous blends. There’s a soft gentle acidity that runs the palate. The fruit expression is stonefruit and skinsy spice but still has amazing length and finishes with a vinous citrus acidity." - Luke, Wildflower
It's difficult to overstate the impact of Wildflower since its inception only a few years ago in 2017. Hailing from Texas, Topher Boehm has an impressive resume - from Brasserie Thiriez to Jester King to his background in astrophysics - not to mention his unique house yeast. Cultivated from foraged wildflowers native to NSW, think wattle blossoms and banksia, blended with a Belgian saison strain, creating something truly individual which speaks of place. Topher even sprayed the entire brewery with inoculated wort when he moved in, just to make sure everything was literally covered in the house culture.
