- Winemaking Notes
A first for Blue Pyrenees Estate, UBF is a skin contact white blend (or ‘orange’ wine) made from both the oldest & youngest vines in the Estate vineyard. Originally planted to produce brandy, the Ugni Blanc (or Trebbiano) fruit was blended with a small Fiano vineyard located just outside the cellar door. Unusually for a white wine, UBF spends nine months on skins with natural primary & secondary fermentation. This extended maceration & minimal input combined with zero filtration has produced an interesting, textural & full flavoured wine to try with a range of food styles. This natural style of wine is made to drink now.
