Definitely a funky wine with quite a bit of cloudiness and some grapes having skin contact. Some tangy chili flavors bring some excitement alongside tropical fruits. Can stand up to a heftier food pairing!
Pairing Suggestions: Charcuterie, Cheese Plate, Kebab
One is a farmer, the other a musician, Andrew and Louise, a husband and wife team who moved back to Mount Gambier (Andrew’s childhood town) to start a family and a wine label. They wanted to grip the earth with their toes and use their knowledge in organic farming and permaculture to create their own wine label. They wanted to create a community where they could be proud to raise their daughter Frankie. Their dream is to inspire homegrown eating, drinking, and music that nourishes the land and reflects their personalities and to share it with the community. They lease three vineyards and planted two more on their farm which is located on the outskirts of Mt Gambier, South Australia. Their property and all their leased vineyards are located on the south side of one of Australia’s youngest volcanoes. Erupting less than 6000 years ago it is filled with water that changes color with the seasons. Arising from an ancient inland sea made into limestone and now receiving water from underground caves added with our generous rainfall all contribute to the abundance of water stored in underground limestone caves with pockets of flint rock spread below the nearby soils. The limestone filters the water naturally and the result is pure water thriving with minerality. All this helps make for incredible soil complexity and the cool climate makes for perfect growing conditions and in turn beautiful, elegant and totally unique wines like no other. They make wines that reflect the eccentricities of their personalities, place and terroir with a minimalistic approach. They use old world wine methods, preferring the challenges of handpicking their fruit, open fermenting with indigenous yeast and only adding sulfur when required by the wine. They do not filter or fine their wines and they are all bottled on-site in their small winery. Their aim is to produce great tasting unique wines expressing this unique terroir above anything else. They produce what they like to drink.
