Rich soils with a backbone of red clay over Schist. 25 year old vines. From the 2018 vintage, this one barrel cuvée of Pinot Noir (777 clone) is grown right outside the winery doors. This parcel has now become the pinot part of Farm Rosato in the years we have made this wine. 100% hand destemmed, presenting as bright red fruit on the nose before melting into richer and earthier tones on the palate, a result of the extended elevage. This wine is mineral driven and alive. It is in its prime at the moment. We recommend opening this amongst friends and consuming the bottle in one sitting. It is here for a good time not a long time.
Eleusis is dedicated to change, evolution and mysticism - an homage to the Eleusinian mysteries, which were the worlds longest running agriculture sect, connected to the worship of the Greek Goddess Demeter - Queen of the harvest. - 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.
