NOW IN BIG BOT!
The Deanery vineyard in the heart of the Picadilly valley with its red clay over sandstone on an eastern facing aspect at the bottom of a cold deep valley,. The vines are V.S.P. trellis and spur pruned. The wine is carbonically fermented for 6 days in a 2500L fibreglass tank. All of the free run juice and light pressings are placed in 500L old French oak barrels to finish ferment and rest. The wine is deliciously pink, light pretty wild strawberries resonate like the sound of an oboe. Deep uplifting structure plays with thyme, marjoram and anise. She is beautiful!
"The 2021 vintage was really good for us. It started with a wet spring which also benefited our new plantings of Trousseau, Grenache Blanc, Gamay, Garganega, Sangiovese….. (a mixed bag) with sunny windless days around flowering which led to good fruit set.. This was followed by a cool summer which keep the vines calm with even slow ripening. Thank you for your kindness Demeter for the bountiful harvest."
"We are proud of being among the first natural winemakers in Australia with the first vintage in 2007 and now to have achieved making wines that are chemical free. But our commitment to human health has led us to trying to make wines with lowers alcohols by picking early and changing of winemaking techniques because we feel that a wine at 11.5-12% or lower is better for you and more enjoyable socially. In the last couple of years we have worked on reducing VA, mousiness and lacticobacillis fermentation in bottle, common challenges in making natural wine. Making natural wines that are sound is an art and a skill but there is no better wine to drink!"
