Red clay over schist with a predominance of Iron Stone Quartz. All from 30+ year old vines. Jumped on and macerated over night, then pressed in the morning to large oak barrels. One sun cycle in barrel, three lunar cycles in tank. A year and half in bottle. We think Yellow is one of the most interesting and complex wines we ever have released at Manon Farm. It opens with searing brightness and acidity and then slowly unfurls with honeyed aromas and luscious texture, before finally presenting a delicious nuttiness once the wine has fully embraced the air. A luminous wine that should be pondered and reflected upon as it undergoes its evolution from opening to finishing the bottle. A new wine for us and one that has come about in its own light and journey from the fantastic 2019 vintage. - Winery Note
Manon is the label for Tim Webber and Monique Millton, farmed from their high altitude vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Tim and Mon have a strong belief in working with nature, and have implemented a number of different programs to support this. Everything in the vineyard is done by hand, following biodynamic principles, they have begun to gradually remove introduced flora, and replant with native vegetation, as well as encouraging native animals, such as kangaroos, who keep the grasses under control, but don't damage the soils through compaction.
A similar philosophy is utilised in the winery, with everything carried out slowly and without any additions. Bunches are harvested by hand, carefully sorted and then allowed to ferment naturally, with indigenous yeasts. Left to settle over the winter months, the wines are finally bottled unfined and unfiltered. These are natural wines - a pure expression of their site and fruit.
