About

Interesting things can happen on the blending bench. If inspiration strikes, some weird and wonderful things can be created.

The Minnow is a blend from the Shadowfax estate vineyard in Weribee. It is comprised of Grenache, Cinsault, Mataro, Roussanne and Mondeuse Noir - a strange combination, perhaps, but one that just works.

This is a finely boned wine, about brightness and freshness, which combines drinking appeal with interest.

It’s no run-of-the-mill red, nor is it too ‘out there’. It’s just a light-medium bodied red with a point of difference.

What It Tastes Like

Red fruits and game, a little reductive smokiness to the nose. The wine feels neatly tucked in, driven more by acid then tannin or fruit weight. Feels like it would come into its own when matched with food. Bright, crunchy with powdery sheets of fine tannin and a lick of spice on the finish. Cool wine.
