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: After a forgettable 2020, winemakers in McLaren Vale were buoyed by what can only be described as a dream vintage. The great season was due to a wet winter, allowing the vines to grow
a good canopy followed by a cool dry summer which ensured even ripening. The results saw not just
great quality fruit but yields were up too. A great vintage for the Vale.
Tasting Note: Sourced from an esteemed organic vineyard, this is a supple and spicy red that personifies the sun-drenched McLaren Vale. A dangerously drinkable red wine with a joyous framework of lifted berry fruit and cleansing acidity. Pair with a charcuterie plate.
