Place: Glen Forbes — South Gippsland, VIC
Fleet is the brainchild of Lisa and Justin Jenkins, two formidable hospitality forces that converged in South Gippsland—Justin's childhood stomping ground—to produce wines from near and far. Releases are singular and, yes, fleeting—now more than ever as their superb wine has gained the acclaim it deserves.
From 24 year old vines. Jura meets South Gippsland! 50% on skins, 50% destemmed. 50% sees a new Stockinger barrel. It's equal parts flinty, stony and saline, with a backing cast of orchard fruits—quince and pear—and a toasty, nutty finish. Wonderful, just wonderful!
