2021 Bink Outlaw Riesling09834
WINEMAKER: Koen Janssens
REGION: Barossa Valley, SA
The Outlaw is sourced from an 85-year-old Riesling block out the back of Tanuda. The soils are sandy loam, and the whole parcel is in organic conversion. The fruit was picked mid-Feb, destemmed and saw about 24-hours of skin contact before pressing. It was then transferred to seasoned French oak puncheons, where it stayed on gross lees until it was racked to stainless steel one month before bottling.
Koen Janssens started his wine life working as a Sommelier in Belgium and around Europe. He landed in Sydney in 2012 but it wasn't long before he was called to life in the vineyard in South Australia. Koen worked with legends we all know and love such as Anton from Lucy M, James from Jauma. He started Yetti and the Kokonut with Dave Geyer, but it was old mate Pete Schell from Spinifex who suggested Koen get out on his own, and Bink was born in 2017.
