Pushmi-Pullyu Mixed Case (2x3x750ml)
Pushmi-Pullyu Mixed Case
Launched earlier this year, Pushmi-Pullyu is a unique collaboration between Gladstone Vineyards and Yeastie Boys that celebrates the creativity and innovation of the Arts Foundation and the artists it supports.
To celebrate the great support the Arts Foundation and Boosted provide to all our wonderful artists, Gladstone Vineyards and Yeastie Boys are teaming up again to offer a special mixed case of Pushmi-Pullyu for Christmas (3x bottles of each); and further, with every order $20 will be donated to a Boosted project specially chosen by Gladstone Vineyard and Yeastie Boys.
The collaboration gives a nod to Dr Doolittle’s two-headed creature and encourages New Zealanders to see wine and beer in a new light, as both creative, interchangeable and unique.
Making a great gift for Christmas, or to adorn your own Christmas table for friends and family to enjoy, get your orders in by December 14th to ensure you don't miss out.
Pushmi (13.5% abv, Limited Edition Dry White Wine)
Pushmi is an exciting co-ferment of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier showcasing the best of both varieties. Co-fermented, with 50% in old barrels to add weight to the wine, the batches were kept on the lees for an extended period with fortnightly stirring to promote palate weight. Grapefruit, mandarin, peach and apricot leap from the nose to the palate, balanced by an underlying minerality and texture that evolves as you sip. Pushmi is a generous full- avoured beast with a finish that just keeps giving. Drink now or cellar for the next three years — if you can! This is a real performer that will develop beautifully with age.
Pullyu (7.0% abv, 20 IBU, Strong White Ale)
Pullyu is a strong (yet nuanced and delicate) white ale that returns to the concept of the 2014 Spoonbender series. To create this beer, we’ve taken some of Gladstone Vineyard’s ‘Pushmi’ white wine, and produced a candi sugar for use alongside the malts and hops. It will make a perfect aperitif... Look for subtle spice and white wine notes on the nose, which integrate with the soft cereal breadth across the palate, with a very gentle cleansing finish.
