Good Summer Vibes.
2021 Brave New Wine 'Riot, Girl'
A blend of Viognier (picked early), super juicy Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino to bring the spice and Gewürztraminer for some lush. Short skin-contact followed by six months on lees for maximum flavour and curves!
2021 Little Brunswick Wine Co. Heathcote Grenache Rose
A bright salmon colour in the glass, a bouquet of floral notes with a hint of apple, cucumber, and watermelon. The palate i s driven with a l ively minerality, some plushness, and a delicate toasted spice character.
2021 Das Juice White
A zippy blend of Sauvignon Blanc (Brackenwood Vineyard – Cert Biodynamic), Semillon (Magpie Springs – Organic) and a splash of Chardonnay (Magpie Springs – Organic) all hand-picked on the same day.
2021 Little Reddie Colbinabbin Nebbiolo / Refosco
The palate really over delivers - generous fruit, bloody orange, ripe raspberry and fresh plums sit between walls of tannin that run long through the pallet. They feel medium fine - terracotta or some sort of slightly porous texture here. The tannin builds weight in the mouth.
2021 CO Late Summer Coldstream White
Viognier (90%) and Marsanne whole bunch (10%) fermented on skins for two weeks then pressed to tank. Naturally settled before bottled with some retained dissolved CO2. No Fining or Filtration. Zero sulphur added.
2021 Blood Moon Wines 'Sang des Etoiles' Sangiovese
25% of the fruit was placed in the bottom of the fermenters, the rest gently destemmed over the top. Wild yeasts were allowed to complete the fermentation, with the cap being rolled under the juice by hand once a day for 18 days, before being pressed to old neutral French oak barrels. No additions apart from sulphur, no fining or filtration.
