|Categories for this Product:||
Winemaker: Corey Ryan
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
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 2021: One of the best vintages in the last decade for the Barossa in 2021 with vignerons
ecstatic with the quality of the fruit. Good rainfall over winter ensured the soil retained moisture over the early part of the growing season. A warm - but not ridiculously hot - Summer followed with dry conditions ensuring an even ripening all the way up to harvest. A vintage that will be celebrated in the region.
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 framework of tannins that make for an explosive
mouthful of deliciousness. Drink over the next two years with your favourite charcuterie or something char-grilled on the barbecue.
