ALLER TROP LOIN - TRIPPY RABBIT 2021
It’s all elderflowers on the nose and intense lemon, lime and grapefruit on the palate. Brilliant acid and it has a lot of length… Some people have suggested it’s almost Sancerre-ish! We learned a good lesson from the 2020 version of this wine and picked the fruit ever so slightly later in 2021 making this iteration the wine we’ve always wanted to produce… It’s my favourite white wine that we’ve made to date.
ORIGIN Yarra Valley
MAKER Aller Trop Loin
GRAPES 100% Sauvignon Blanc
aller trop loin is the cheeky sister label of Six Parallels South.
Inspired by an errant footstep that went too far and ‘de-koshered’ a wine during Six Parallels South’s first vintage, winemaker Mark Sztar decided to use some good old fashioned chutzpah and put a pig (the most non-kosher thing there is…) on the wine’s label, so there was no doubt as to its non-kosher status! After the said wine, a Yarra Valley Chardonnay, sold out in two months, he began to think this may be a ‘silk purse from a sow’s ear’ moment and quickly set about finding some other varieties to make more ‘swine wine’ next vintage.
