St Abigail is a golden barrel aged ale made with peaches. It is named for Chris and Emily’s second daughter.

This was made by blending barrel aged golden mixed culture fermentation ale with 506kg of fresh, whole, handpicked, tree ripened white peaches from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale, NSW. After a four and a half month maceration and refermentation of fruit and beer, it was bottled and allowed to naturally carbonate and mature in bottle before release. 

Tasting notes: “An incredibly bright and expressive nose, the purity of fruit is immense.. ripe and perfumed, sweet peach flesh and tinned peach juice. There’s a creamy element and a whiff of funk to balance the fruit. Balanced clean acidity gives a beautiful zippy finish. Stunning. A real ripe young Chardonnay vibe to it.”
Wildflower was co-founded in 2016 by brothers-in-law Topher Boehm and Chris Allen. 

Made a little differently, their beers have been fermented with a diversity of yeasts and bacteria collected from flowers native to NSW... hence the name. Their practice has developed over time and so has their relationships with local regenerative growers of grain, hops and fruit, who they celebrate their agriculturally focused fermented ales with.
