Our Notes

Secret Bottle’s first-ever orange wine and one we’re excited to share with you. This “Back To Basics” skin-contact wine, a semillon-riesling blend, is funky and cloudy, with fresh apple-juice, green characters and an intriguing raspberry-lolly note. 

Unfined, unfiltered, and vegan, it’s a gloriously unmediated conversation with the grape and the terroir and best enjoyed slightly chilled with friends. 


From The Winemaker

Aromas of peaches, mandarin peel and ruby grapefruit. The palate leads with great minerality and tension. You can feel the natural acidity of Riesling and the texture from the Semillon. Loads of citrus tang, think grapefruit pith and brown lime. Lovely texture and phenolic grip.  

This wine has beautiful drinkability straight off the bat. Slightly hazy from a no fining - no filtration philosophy, this haze will continue to sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Shake it up and drink it cloudy, or decant by pouring each glass slowly - its your call. Served best at about 14 deg, it's a perfect aperitif. Watch this wine develop over the next few years.

About the Winery

Relative newcomers to a Barossa scene dominated by big names, Whistler’s young-gun approach to winemaking has been a huge hit - cheeky skeleton labels, a now entirely organic and biodynamic process, and an embrace of all things weird and funky.

Recently appointed winemaker Michael J. Corbett, formerly of Tyrells, brings to the table an uncommon attention to detail and a commitment to unfined, unfiltered wine, left to shine just as it left the barrel.
