Wildflower Gold Blend #19- Tasting Notes

Wildflower Gold Blend #19- Tasting Notes

We are excited to announce that Wildflower Gold Blend #19 will be available at our cellar door and online (at 2pm) on 5 April 2019.

At release, Blend #19 has savoury aromas of preserved citrus, cumin spice and vanilla meld with a solid cellar funk character. There’s an autumnal feel to the nose... less bright punchy citrus more tropical fruit and warm secondary aromas. The palate has lovely development, typical Wildflower citrus is pushed to the background with texture and oak featuring more heavily than normal, all the while maintaining great acidity and drive.

Gold is a blended, barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Blend #19 is a blend of four barrels. 1705 (11 month old Gold), 1706 (8 month old Gold), 1712 (6 month old Gold) and 1758 (11 month old Gold).

The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals: Single Origin (S.O.) Moree, NSW grown Gairdner ale malt and North Star, NSW grown Spitfire S.O. raw wheat thanks to Provenance Malt. It is made with filtered Sydney water and Motueka (NZ) and Saaz (CZ) hops. Finally, it was fermented with our house culture: brewers yeast, foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on November 29 2018 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 18 weeks. At bottling it was 5.0% ABV, 25 IBU and 0.5°P (FG= 1.002 SG).

Like all our beers, Gold Blend #19 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).
