Yetti & the Kokonut


‘Hipster Juice’

Red Wine   |   Riverland - Australia


The name of the wine, coupled with the color, pretty much tells you everything you need to know. This is for the cool-kids and not meant to be a wine of too much thought but rather too many friends with whom this should be shared. Dave & Koen had the vision of a blank white canvas and having a lot of fun with heaps of colors. There have been many iterations of this wine, and in 2021 there were two releases. This release is primarily Lagrein-based, with a touch of Pinot Blanc and Savignin for dramatic effect. The result is like a cross between Beaujolais and Mourvèdre from the Languedoc.

The grapes were handpicked with “high flavor x bright acid” as the common equation.  In the cellar, they were all de-stemmed and fermented in stainless-steel with five days on skins.  The wine was then pressed to seasoned French hogsheads for eight months, after which it went to stainless-steel tanks for another four months. It was bottled without fining or filtration and just a small addition of sulfur.

Tasting Note

Show this to anyone and say ‘here’s what fun natural wine looks like’ and it ticks the boxes. Like a cross between Beaujolais and Mourvèdre from the Languedoc, this wine is mouthwatering with herbal, savory notes. It is wild for sure but you know what you’re getting into when it is aptly named ‘Hipster Juice’…drink it chilled.
