Yetti & The Kokonut

Ampersand Distilling Company

South Australia

Dave Geyer and Koen Janssens are the Yetti and the Kokonut. These two high-octane, super fun young winemakers have partnered up to produce some truly original and thrilling wines from sustainable vineyards across all of South Australia.

A friendship turned into a balanced wine making partnership, Yetti who manages the vineyards and Koko who does the sale side of the business. Together they make the wine. Strongly believing that it all starts in the vineyard, Yetti and the Kokonut always farm, co farm or have a strong input into the vineyards they take fruit from. The name Yetti and the Kokonut comes form our nicknames given during vintage. These wines are colourful, flavourful and a little tongue in cheek.

2021 RED MUSCAT

 

Barossa. Red Muscat is a unique mutation that has a color a touch darker than Pinot Gris with both pink. Translucent raspberry preserves in color. The nose is exotic with ‘classic’ muscat notes of lychee and quince and they a pear and apricot quality emerges. A slight bay leaf tinge is also present and honestly, there is a lot going on here. The palate has a bit of a creaminess to it but very, very fresh. Green apple, fresh grass, raspberries, fresh hay and the quince coming back. The finish is fine and long with a freshness, but also softness to it.

The barrels are then topped regularly and aged for six months before being racked to stainless-steel tank to harmonize together.  It was bottled five months later without fining, filtration, or SO2.
