Rhoney styled Syrah, earthy, pure and graphitey. More from the wonderful Producer:

"On our farm in West Gippsland, Al’s dad planted the first vines back in the early 2000s. Starting off with 4 short rows of Syrah – which we can see from our back veranda. He then planted a few rows of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that he grew from cuttings taken off a lovely friend’s vineyard who lives by the coast. These vines are named after Minetta, the sweetest vigneron and most soulful lady. A real salt of the earth character.

These vines are what gave us the confidence to expand the vineyard in 2017. They are old enough now to have their roots down deep into the subsoil and absolutely hum with vitality, producing super balanced fruit with intensity of flavour and length.

Surrounded by our fruit trees and veggie garden as well as our duck house, this little plot gets a lot of extra attention. In 2021 the fruit looked pristine and we had enough grapes (just) to make a single barrel of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Both wines were bottled straight from the barrel. We filled 220 bottles of each cuvee.

Absolutely no additions/no preservatives whatsoever. Just grapes.

Cofermented with 5-10% Viognier.

We hand destemmed the fruit into an open top fermenter for natural fermentation. Basket pressed after three weeks to one old oak barrel and a small VC. It has a cool climate/ cool season structure which is almost juxtaposed against the super lifted perfume. 450 bottles filled.
