Tasting Notes

100% Grolleau picked early from Le Mont (Faye d'Anjou), with vine age 30 to 100 years. The wine is fermented for two weeks as whole clusters lightly stomped each day before being pressed straight to barrel. It ages there for 6 months before bottling. Very bright and joyful example. Extremely limited with only 36 bottles in Australia and 3 barrels being made in total. - Importer Note

Japanese-Canadians Mai & Kenji Hodgson made the jump from Vancouver to the Loire back in 2009 after their years of wine loving turned eventually forced it's hand into wine making. Born and raised in the outskirts of Vancouver, Kenji studied mechanical engineering at British Columbia University and alongside his studies discovered his love for wine. Shortly after meeting Mai the two travelled to Japan where their affection for minimal intervention wine grew and eventually found themselves in the heart of the Loire. Now they live in the beautiful village of Rablay-sur-Layon, surrounded by historical vineyards, neighbouring vignerons and 4 hectares of vines to call their own in Anjou. Their soils are largely shale, schist and clay, and their farming strictly organic with some biodynamic practices, entirely motivated by their pursuit of the understanding of terroir. All fruit is handpicked, fermented on native yeast and without any additions whatsoever. - Importer Note
