"Then there’s the 2020 Rosso. A wine that has not been seen since the last release in 2017. This is pure Glou Glou, high energy, slightly wild, and refreshment plus, can be consumed slightly chilled (recommended) or not. As smashable as they come." - Dane
"Momento Mori Wines was born out of a simple desire to make wines that first and foremost have respect for the living. They are crafted with consideration and integrity throughout the entire process. And ultimately (and selfishly) are wines that I wanted to drink and share with others My wife Hannah and I farm two small plots of approx 0.75 hectare each on our property in Gippsland Victoria. The vineyards are situated at 400m above sea level, tucked into the steep hill-sides on the Strezelecki Ranges. We also farm another small 1.5 hectare plot beneath the Black Snake Ranges in the Tonimbuk valley. We farm according to strict organic principles and have an upmost respect for the living and dynamic systems around us.
All of the wines we produce are the definition of hand-made. Small ferments, wild yeast, no new oak or mechanical pumps used on the wines, no fining or filtering and no additions, including no S02 at any stage of wine making. The sum of this is minuscule amounts of multiple different wines. All of them idiosyncratic. All of them full of character, freshness and purity. And above all, alive."
