Ramato style Pinot Gris. Long carbonic maceration, then foot stomped for a few more days fermentation before basket pressing straight to neutral French oak barrels for six months. Bottled unfined & unfiltered with only a small addition of sulphur. Sexy amber/bronze colour. Smells like toffee apple on a hot day. Mulberry, spice, and a bittersweet finish. - Winery Note
Brave New Wine is an adventure in wine by wife and husband team Yoko Luscher-Mostert and Andries Mostert. They seek out tiny volumes of high quality fruit from vineyards in the Great Southern Wine region of Western Australia, and employ a lo-fi / minimal intervention approach to turning those grapes into delicious wine. As they say, "irreverent yet relevant wines."
All of their wines are natural ferments, with no fining, filtration, or additions aside from a kiss of sulphur at bottling (and some without too!).
But their laid-back and carefree attitude rests on a bed of serious winemaking chops. Andries has 25 years of winemaking experience across Central Otago and Emilia-Romagna and at some of Australia's top wineries including Howard Park, Moss Wood, Brokenwood, Shaw and Smith, Best's and Ashton Hills.
Yoko, fittingly, is the muse who, along with being the resident foot-stomper, pump-over gal and general gag-maker, informs the label's creative, free-thinking identity. Each vintage, she designs the stunningly eye-catching labels that adorn each wine. The pair's hard-earned experience and dedicated personalities have shaped a vanguard of Australia's new-styled negociants - classical wine training and expertise with unlimited freedom of expression.
