2013 Petit Manseng

Originating in the foothills of the Pryenees in the South of France,
this late ripening variety may well suit the challenges of our high
elevation (1000 metres) vineyard.

It has fruit avours in the tropical spectrum, pineapple, guava,
lycees and some quincy characters with a slight gingery spicyness.
9 GPL of residual sugar was retained to offset the high natural
acidity and to round out the very textured palate.

This wine was barrel fermented with a wild yeast, with no additions
or treatments other than ltering prior to bottling.

2010 Word of Mouth Isobel's Idyll

Pinot Noir Chardonnay

Isobel's Idyll is the first sparkling white made from our vineyard. We named it in honour of Isobel who was born at the time of vintage. She is the first grandchild of Sharyn and Jamie Gordon, founding partners in Word of Mouth Wines.
Equal quantities of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were used, with the base wine being shipped to Blue Pyrenees Estate for the Methode traditionelle processing where it spent a further 2 years on lees.

WOM Merlot 2013
 
2013 Merlot

At our altitude Merlot needs a lot of hands on attention to reduce crop ripen. Gentle hand plunging during fermentation in small open vats was followed by 12 months in French oak. The nose reveals plum, strawberry and liquorice, the palate is dense and tightly structured and has a fine persistent tannin finish. Best now for 6 years.

1K High Riesling - Word of Mouth wine
 
1K High - 2013 Riesling

Made in the Spätlese style, which literally translates, as "late picking". This Riesling ups the flavor intensity due to its extra days of sunshine. Obvious citrus aromas are enriched with notes of orange blossom, and a hint of candied peach and apricot. The pallet is soft and luscious finishing with a balanced crispness. This sweeter style is good for serving with Asian or Mexican fare – something with a bit of chili and spice.

2011 Sauvignon blanc
 
2015 Viognier

Our vineyard has deep rich basalt soils and sits at a cool 1000 metres on the north facing slopes of Mt Canobolas.The combined climatic conditions of this site are near to perfect for Cool Climate wines. Our approach to growing and winemaking is one of minimum intervention. We do not use fertilizers or insecticides, all fruit is hand picked, whole bunch pressed and wild yeast fermented with extended lees contact with no additions or fining. A natural approach!

Aromas of Honey Suckle with hints of Apricot reveal themselves on the textured palate with a lingering citrusy finish of a cumquat like flavour.

WOM-PinotGris13-750mL
2014 Pinot Gris

This is our 12th vintage of Pinot Gris and we are still learning. The wines are becoming more complex with time, the obvious apple, pear and citrus characters are now expanding to stone fruit and nougat with an underlying minerality. The pallet is rich and textural with great persistence, the nish lingers with zesty acidity. A great food wine that can handle heavier dishes than most whites and is great with Asian cuisine. These wines are delicious young and continue developing with time, becoming richer and more luscious.

WOM Riesling 2013
2012 Riesling

Our style is influenced by German winemaking. This vintage has classic Riesling character, aromas of enticing citrus blossom / lime leave with hints of nectarine and Jasmine. There is a delicious smack of fresh cut lime on the palate, finishing with zingy acidity and the barest hint of sweetness.

Great with Sushi, shellfish and Thai food.

Delicious drinking now and will develop and evolve for the next decade.

2010 Sweet Milli

The wine has lifted fruit aromas of peach and fresh apricots, a palate both taut and tight with an unusual freshness and vitality and a finish clean and zesty with a delicious tang of peach sorbet.

WOM Pinot Noir 2010 Label
2010 Pinot Noir - SOLD OUT

Typical of our vineyard style this wine has spent a little more time in wood to layer in some additional character. An inviting nose of freshly stewed rhubarb, strawberries and cherry leads to a delicious fruit driven palate that has some spicier characters, with deceptive length and a fine tannin finish. A great summer or winter drink with salmon, duck or pork.

Word of Mouth Wine label for ...A very cool red
2011 The Very Cool Red

The idea for this wine is the great wines of Beaujolais. Not having any Gamay we used whole bunches of Pinot layered between crushed Merlot and a slow cool ferment. A slurping good lunch red with juicy red fruits, that likes a slight chill.
