Rhen Dodd and Janelle De Gabriele make invigorating wines under the aptly named ‘Ephemera’ moniker. Based out of the Yarra Valley, together Rhen and Janelle explore ‘snapshot’ winemaking, focusing their energy on their organically grown vineyard in the Yarra alongside their love for the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote.
Negroamaro is a dark skinned variety native to Southern Italy and is typically known for its dark fruits and slightly bitter qualities. In this wine, the fruit is direct pressed and made as a white wine. Very fresh acid with an oily texture. Subtle notes of dried herbs, blackberry and a bitter finish. Enjoy this with prosciutto pizza.
