The silly season is upon us and I know your inboxes are already overstuffed with temptation so I won’t mince words (like I usually do). If you fancy lubricating your summer festivities with a few bottles of biodynamic wine from South Gippsland, here’s everything you need to know…
We’ve held back a small allocation of each of our current releases for our mailing list and summer cellar door, including:
Pétillant naturel 2019 – our natural sparkling, made from 100% pinot noir and aged for 4.5 years on its lees delivering Champagne-like complexity of flavour and texture with an abundance of small, fine bubbles. $65 (not available online)
Syrah Rosè 2022 – fresh and bone dry with our signature drive of acidity. A beautiful salmon-pink blush with a hint of strawberries and dried herbs on the nose. $35
Riesling 2020 – pure, dry and chiseled, with a chalky finish to the palate and a good drive of Alsation-like sherbety acidity. Full malolactic fermentation gives texture and breadth to an otherwise classic, acid-focused palate with a stony minerality. $50
Chardonnay 2020 – a Chardonnay lover’s Chardonnay that showcases pristine fruit from our biodynamic vines grown in our true cool climate. Classic flavours shine through with opulence, complexity, texture and length on the palate. $65
Pinot noir 2020 – savoury with mixed spice, white pepper, gorgeous grippy tannins and length and a new level of elegance thanks to the cool ripening period of vintage 2020. $65
To get hold of some or all of these simply hit reply, tell us what you fancy, we’ll send you an invoice and get your wine on its way. Feel free to mix up a case any which way you like, as long as it’s in multiples of 6 for safe shipping (shipping is $10 for 6 or free for 12 bottles Australia-wide). If you live nearby or are passing through, you’re welcome to arrange a time to pick your order up and save on shipping.
If you’d rather try before you buy, Neil and I will be opening bottles of all our current releases at our cellar door on the following days after Christmas:
December 2023: Thursday 28th, Friday 29th, Saturday 30th, 12-5pm
January 2024: Tuesday 2nd, Friday 5th, Saturday 6th, 12-5pm
No need to book, just pull in for a chat on any of these dates. Tastings are $25 for 5 wines.
There’s still some availability at our cottage over summer if you really fancy soaking up the vines and exploring our region at a leisurely pace.
Or if you’re not planning to be in our neck of the woods for a while, you can pick up our wines from a few boutique retailers or enjoy a bottle alongside beautiful food prepared by someone else at one of our wonderful loyal restaurants – you’ll find all our stockists here.
Whatever and wherever you choose to drink this season, may you be merry and well.
