JILLY WINE CO - BANANA GIRL 2021
"We haven't made a wine like this before. The Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc was pressed, and instead of discarding the skins as normal, we fermented the wine on skins for 10 days, and then basket pressed to old barriques".
Banana on the nose. Textured palate. Passionfruit. Acidity.Textural driven orange wine. Loads of tannin and mouthfeel.

‘Moments bottled become memories poured.’
A story of small-batch, seasonal and creative winemaking, where each vintage is the product of a time and place, and a thought, or feeling pursued: a spirited endeavour that bottles a time of inspiration and experimentation; a moment captured to never be reproduced in the same way, again. An extension of the mind and heart of Jared Dixon, Jilly Wines are hand-made in Clunes, New South Wales, to inspire, celebrate, and enjoy.
We believe in a philosophy that wine should be representative of time and place - a moment bottled - and so we produce minimal intervention, natural wines, utilising natural yeasts with no fining, and zero additives aside from a small amount of sulphur before going to bottle.
