Two Italians and a Portuguese picked together and co-fermented wild in aged white oak, with regular soft lees stirring over three months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.Sweet aromas of marshmallow, toast and honey, with some tangy spice and floral citrus blossom. The palate shows mango, apricot and sweet white peach. Deep, viscous and oily texture with a lovely saline thread running through.
The winemaking philosophy is 'lo-fi', in that we embrace wild-ferments, minimal adjustments in the winery, gentle handling. Most wines are unfined and unfiltered. We are hands-on in terms of the grunt work, the care and guidance, but with a hands-off approach to the science of winemaking, using little or no inputs and employing traditional processes. An old-school approach yet with a modern flare for creativity and adventure.
Established in 2003 by owner/winemaker Brad Wehr, the labels and wine styles have continued to grow, covering traditional Margaret River varietals through to some eclectic and unusual grape varieties and winemaking methods. - Winery Note
