Payten and Jones Wild Ride Skin Contact Verdelho 2020 - Yarra Valley
Bottle size: 750ml
Orange Wine. White Wine made like a Red Wine. Verdelho that doesn't taste like Verdelho. A good thing?
Dried apricot aromatics, generous mouthfeel and tannin with fresh acidity. Great with Asian Food - complements spice and textural dishes.
Allegedly the only two (literate) students to Graduate Healesville High School 1997, we were always destined to work together. Behn (the Payten) drove his first Tractor at the age of 5. Troy (the Jones) was talking by the age of 1 and hasn’t shut up since.
Naturally we fell in with the wrong crowd out here, and became heavily involved in the wine industry.
Behn’s dad Pete knows a thing or two about vineyards. Before his years of working in the Yarra Valley, he managed Australia’s first organic vineyard and is always focused heavily on sustainability. We knew we were in good hands. The three of us continue to spend regular nights sharing a glass of Red, solving the world’s problems.
Our wines are a little different – they may be murky in the glass and can sometimes throw a bit of sediment.
They always look better with a bit of air, served neat in a glass (although straws also work), at the right temperature, with fresh food and great company.
The wines are not ‘perfect’ by industry standards, but they have the perfect personality for the situations they’re made for.
Drinking these wines is like experiencing a band live, as opposed to listening to a recorded track.
There’s minimal intervention and doing nothing to a wine is the hardest part of making it.
Always interesting, with a little soul left in.
Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)
In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
