Summary: Cowpunk are small batch wines made from single sites, crafted by Aaron Mercer and grown by long term friends and acquaintances. 100% unashamedly natural, Cowpunk is leading the charge for the modern drinker seeking wines made in a hands-off manner but still want complexity and enjoyment. Made by award winning winemaker Aaron Mercer this dynamic brand is organic, vegan, preservative free and features no additions.
Vineyards: Sourced from a 20-year-old organic vineyard in Canowindra, NSW.
Winemaking: Classic hands off winemaking has resulted a Pinot Gris in the Orange style. Once pressed, a third of the organic Pinot Gris juice sat on skins for 7 days to aid colour and texture. The wine was then de-juiced and fermented with no additions.
Vintage 2021: It was considered a good vintage in Canowindra in 2021 much to the relief of vignerons. It was wetter than usual which was welcome after a number of drought years in Central NSW. Rain caused a few issues as did hail causing a delay in picking times. Organic growers enjoyed larger yields due to judicious vineyard management with larger bunch weights due to the abundance of rain. The vintage was fast with few delays between varieties being picked.
Tasting Note: Deeply aromatic with a fine floral drive this wine is imbued with notes of blood orange, musk and other rich, fruit flavours. On the palate it has grip and delicacy with lovely mouth-filling textures complemented by notes of amaro and hints of Campari. Really impressive length of flavour ensures this will be a great food wine and could be paired with a multitude of dishes.
