2021 Travis Tausend Handful11976
WINEMAKER: Travis Tausend
REGION: Adelaide Hills, SA
The Handful wine has been made from the same 15 rows of south west facing Semillon vineyard in Hope Forest for the last 7 years. The fruit from these 15 rows is so full of flavour and racy acidity it blows my mind. In the cellar we destem the Semillon and allow the wine to ferment on skins. The wine is tasted morning and evening until the tannins and acid begin to intertwine in an interesting way. At this point we press the fruit on a long slow press cycle to extract the wonterful flavours from those skins
Travis Tausend makes pure, compelling zero-zero wines from organically farmed fruit in Hope Forest, one of the coolest microclimates in Adelaide Hills. Using only native yeasts and zero sulphur, this is natural wine at its best and most precise - truly impressive and a joy to drink.
