Second release from the Fourth Wave Wine team and main partner in crime: winemaker Corey Ryan. Certified organic vines and made with no added sulphites. Wild yeast fermentation and bottled unfiltered and unfined. Vegan friendly if that’s important to you. DIAM cork (and a wax seal).
Wild Folk, Touriga Nacional, McLaren Vale, 2022
Electric panther purple. Plush and forward purple berries, black jelly beans, jäger herbs/anise with cool stone. Seductively smooth (maybe a poke of alcohol) with bright young thing purple fruit saturated with those anise driven herbs and freshened up through the finish with youthful acidity. Completely smashable.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
