The difference between this and the Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is not only the lack of Semillon in this wine, but it was also fermented in an Oeuf or Egg (naturally). It's more textural, more aromatic and more of everything. This is caused by the constant movement of liquid whilst in the Egg. A very tasty wine! - Chris L
The fruit is destemmed sauvignon blanc, left to soak and start ferment on berries for one month in an 800L ceramic egg, then the berries are removed then pressed and added back. The wine is slightly cloudy golden colour. A perfumed richness of Turkish delight served in a dank cave with beeswax candles flickering gently and enchanting games of chess being played by ‘the in crowd’, lucid fluidity coats and a harmonic rhythm on your tongue. - Winery Note
I make natural wine! For me natural wine must be made from organic/ biodynamic grapes (naturally fermented). The winemaker must not fine, filter or add anything including sulphur!
All of the Lucy M. Wines are made from organically farmed grapes, currently not certified, however in the next couple of years we are moving to certification at much cost to ensure another level of assurance. The wines have no added or natural sulphites. No chemicals are used in the winery, not even to to clean (only water is used and occasionally alcohol which we distill at the winery), no sulphur is used in any part of the winery, not in the wine making process or the storage of empty barrels. We would like to make wines for health, to the betterment of humans and the environment.
We are proud of being among the first natural winemakers in Australia with the first vintage in 2007 and now to have achieved making wines that are chemical free. But our commitment to human health has led us to trying to make wines with lower alcohols by picking early and changing of winemaking techniques because we feel that a wine at 11.5-12% or lower is better for you and more enjoyable socially. In the last couple of years we have worked on reducing VA, mousiness and lacticobacillis fermentation in bottle, common challenges in making natural wine. Making natural wines that are sound is an art and a skill but there is no better wine to drink! - Winery Note
