Whole berries were retained after destemming the bunches (no crushing took place), before a cool, open top fermentation. Fermented slowly for 12 days on skins and then basket pressed to seasoned French Hogsheads for 10 months of maturation. Bottled without any fining agents.

“You'd be hard pressed to find a better value drink-now Aussie sangiovese than this beauty and that should be celebrated. Full of juicy, vibrant cherry fruit, a flutter of dried herbs and earthy spices yet remains in a savoury spectrum. It's lighter framed with pleasantly grippy, textural tannins. Gorgeous wine. Love it.” 95 points, James Halliday 2021 Wine Companion. 

"A dancy, light and bright Pinot from the Adelaide Hills. 

Wild yeast fermented in terracotta pots with 30% whole bunches before being pressed to older French oak for four months. Bottled without fining or filtration with minimal sulphur.

Red cherries and sour cherries, cranberries and rhubarb all mesh together with ease. The fruit just sizzles and waltzes on its toes. Delicate spices curl around the mouth lingering long as the fruit gets comfy and just hangs on the mid-palate. A red apple crunch a parting gift. Come at me weekend kind of wine I'm thinking.

Drink to six years. " - 94 points, Qwine
