St Phoebe is an Australian Wild Ale refermented with plums. While the beer is named for Chris and his wife Emily's first daughter, Saint Phoebe was a first century deaconess from modern day Greece. In 2020, this beer was made from golden mixed fermentation, barrel aged beer and 722kg of fresh, tree ripened Ebony Sun plums hand picked from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale, NSW
Strong skinsy pinot gris pet nat vibes. Lifted nose, perfumed (rose water) and full of ripe sweet fruit. Surprisingly funky and with a dark spice complexity. The palate shines, beautiful, subtly pretty integration with the fruit, creamy carbonation, sweet purple fruits and a moreish gentle acidity to finish.
