Pinot Gris macerated on skins for a fortnight. This wine welcomes the sunshine with its luminous blush character. It has texture from maceration and a fruitfulness from the warm and dry 2019 vintage. Despite the heat of the season it has a piercing acidity - thanks to our 600m elevation, rocks and minerals, and cool mornings. This wine should be chilled and drunk after a hard day’s work….. or while sitting at the beach, or under the shade of a tree at the park. It is somewhere between a darker rosé or a light red wine. 2019 Blush is the last wine of this Blush style that we have made for the foreseeable future. At present, with our small yields, Pinot Gris will only make its way into Forest Red & Peaches. Blush is also a great wine to cellar for years to come, as its evolution is just beginning. - Winery Note
Manon is the label for Tim Webber and Monique Millton, farmed from their high altitude vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Tim and Mon have a strong belief in working with nature, and have implemented a number of different programs to support this. Everything in the vineyard is done by hand, following biodynamic principles, they have begun to gradually remove introduced flora, and replant with native vegetation, as well as encouraging native animals, such as kangaroos, who keep the grasses under control, but don't damage the soils through compaction.
A similar philosophy is utilised in the winery, with everything carried out slowly and without any additions. Bunches are harvested by hand, carefully sorted and then allowed to ferment naturally, with indigenous yeasts. Left to settle over the winter months, the wines are finally bottled unfined and unfiltered. These are natural wines - a pure expression of their site and fruit.
