"Koo de food" We were first introduced to Pet Nat in 2014 while living in Burgundy. We were won over by this unique and refreshing wine. Having now been making them in small batches since 2017 for ourselves, this year we made enough to share. Sparkle Motion is 75% Western Victorian Chardonnay 2021; 12.5% Macedon Ranges Pinot Gris 2021; 12.5% Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir 2020. A multi-regional, multi vintage blend, rose which is aimed at being delicious and refreshing with some added complexity from the 2020 Pinot Noir.
Chris Dilworth and Loique Allain have created a small negociant business. They currently work with three different vineyards in the Macedon Ranges, two of these they work in themselves, making approximately 350-400 doz per year. They moved to Hepburn in the beginning of 2017 and have always felt a strong connection to this region having visited for more than 10 years. It is one of Australia’s true cool climates with a huge amount of potential.
