Wild & Wilder, ‘Cloud Cuckoo Land’, South Australia, Australia 2020






A vibrant, textural white with hints of almond blossom, quince and ripe pear. Tangy, almost exotic, but pithy and delicious.

Wild & Wilder sums up their winemaking ethos as “Great fruit, grown by great people and made with a lot of love by people that know that wine is all about the good times, delicious food and creating great memories.” Founded by Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW, who also make the Thistledown wines, the mundane is just not in their DNA.

Cloud Cuckoo Land is an imaginary state of absurd over optimism – something that all those at Wild & Wilder are often accused of. Indeed, not so long ago, if they had said that they wanted to make high quality, low intervention wines made from Mediterranean varieties in South Australia’s Riverland, Cloud Cuckoo land is exactly where people would have said that they lived! 



“A concept wine, designed to maximise all that the Riverland does well: a motley assortment of varieties, best with Italian fare; a sunny consistent climate, old vines here and there and an acceptance of experimentation and irreverence. And here it is! Aromatic, textural, mid weighted and fresh. A perfect everyday wine. Grape spice, orange verbena, bitter almond and spiced pear scents rally along a chalky cry to arms.” 90 points Silver (2020 vintage)
