Origin: Mornington Peninsula
Grape(s): Pinot Gris
Style: Fun Orange Wine
A mouth-watering, textural wine with two weeks fermented on skins before some old barrel ageing. Gingery and orangey with a bit of Campari tartness with peach and spice undertones. A silky mouthfeel and firm acidity to give it a lively balance.
Yugen’s first vintage was in 2018 founded by Tim Scanlon and Brodie Comer. With its fruit sustainably sourced from Galli Estate (Sunbury) and Bittern Estate (Mornington Peninsula), and working on continuing to build longstanding and mutually beneficial relationships with growers. And in 2019, Ben Buckingham and Rosemary Buckingham joined Yugen and the wines and business are run between the four partners.
