Summary: Wild Folk - the natural choice in wine - are pure expressions of the variety and the vineyard. Minimal intervention in the winery ensures a joyful glass of just what mother nature intended. Wild yeast fermented, no additions, vegan friendly, preservative free, unfined and unfiltered, nothing but fermented grapes at their finest.
Winemaking: A less is more regime in the vineyard and the winery has resulted in a fresher more uncompromising wine stylistically. Handpicked and sorted and then added to open fermenters before undergoing plunging. Consigned to stainless steel after fermentation this wine was bottled shortly after with little additions and was neither fined nor filtered.
Vintage 2023:The Barossa had a cooler and wetter Winter and Spring leading into the growing and harvest seasons. The vintage started later as a result and also finished later after a longer, cooler growing period. The wines in the best sites did develop to full flavour ripeness and show a real brightness and array of beautifully complexing flavours often not seen in the much warmer years.
Tasting Note: This is such an honest expression of Shiraz from the Barossa exhibiting both freshness and flavour. It combines dark berries, spice and a soft, plush generosity of fruit flavour and fine tannins that make for a very satisfying glass of wine. Drink over the next two years with your favourite charcuterie or something char-grilled on the barbecue.
