2016 ATTWOODS 'GARIBALDI FARM' CHARDONNAY
These 25 yo vines produced extremely low yields but high in quality. This wine, fermented in 50% stainless steel barrels, 50% new oak is a perfect example of our style, delicate and floral with great length and natural acid.
Our first ever Ballarat Chardonnay, only 20 cases available.
2015 'OLD HOG' PINOT NOIR
Organic Geelong fruit, 50% whole bunch, wild yeast fermented in 1 and 2 tonne wooden fermenters. Light extraction, 1 year in French barriques (of which one third new) then bottled and left a further 12 months before release.
This is an elegant, cranberried, cherried pinot noir with whole bunch characteristics and silky tannins.
PRICE: $49.00 (SORRY, SOLD OUT)
2015 'OLD HOG' CHARDONNAY
Early picked Geelong fruit (close-planted vineyard), whole bunch pressed, wild yeast and barrel fermented. Aged in 1/3 new barriques, 1/3 stainless steel barrels and 1/3 old barriques for 1 year.
Good complexity but very approachable now. Great depth of citrus and stone fruits (nectarine tang) well balanced with mild oak and mild butter finish. Walks the tightrope and delivers all that is great about chardonnay.
PRICE: $35.00 (SORRY, SOLD OUT)
2013 'LE SANGLIER' SHIRAZ
100% whole bunch, biodynamic Geelong fruit, wild yeast ferment in 1 tonne wooden fermenter. Aged in large format oak for 2 years, then gravity bottled and left a further 12 months in bottle before release.
This is meaty, smoky, clovey, reductive, punched out with cherry-plum fruit and nutty through the finish.
