Wild-fermented on skins in amphorae for one weeks before pressing off to an aged French barrique, on fine lees. Light brick red colour with purple hues. Vibrant sour red cherry, blood orange and purple plum aromas, campari-like, some rose-petal florals, herbal sage and thyme, and a potpourri of scented spice and earth. The palate is medium-weight yet with concentrated, juicy flavours of sweet plum and savoury tomato. Exotic spice and delicate pepper, perfume, wet stone/earth and dried herb. Enjoyed with or without food. - Winery Note
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.
