NV Backenal White:
The grapes for this wine were picked at night to keep the temperature cool and enhance fruit quality and freshness. This wine is full of character highlighted with aromas of peach, melon, and citrus. The fruit flavours are balanced with a natural intensity and very smooth finish. Bakenal by Evoi captures the spirit of the bacchanal – a wild, uninhibited celebration which combines the energy of beautiful people with the vibrant colours, sights and sounds of the Caribbean Carnival.

2015 Sauvgnon Blanc Semillon:
94 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion
Ray Jordan's Top 100 Australian White Wines
Gold and Trophy (Best SBS Blend) – Margaret River Wine Show
The grapes for this wine were picked at night to keep the temperature cool and enhance fruit quality and freshness. The wine was fermented in tank with a small portion in new French barriques with high solids and wild yeast. This wine is full of character with aromas of gooseberry, capsicum, passionfruit, and green bean, interlaced with a barrel ferment complexity. The intense palate retains all these characters with the Semillon and wild ferment portion adding structure, complexity, and enhancing the very long finish.
