Atípico wines is a brand new label brought to life by Jordan Hogg. We've known Jordan for years now where he previously worked as Winemaker at Seresin and now at Rock Ferry (both BioGro certified organic producers in Marlborough).
'Under the Plum Tree' is his debut wine, named for the place where he fermented the wine - literally in the vineyard, under the plum tree - and it's a light red field blend of Pinot Noir, Gris & Blanc.
BioGro certified organic, this wine was hand harvested, wild fermented as 100% whole bunches (all varieties fermented together, in the vineyard, for a total of 12 days, then matured in aged French oak barriques for 10 months before being bottled unfiltered, unfined and without any added sulphites.
It's a spicy, herbal, bright red, with good depth of flavour, but ultimately light and fresh, so best served slightly chilled (at say 14 degrees).... we think it's delicious!
