- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The hits just keep on coming from Rhenn Dodd. In 2016, Rhenn was given access to a small parcel of Negroamaro fruit from the Chalmers block in Heathcote. He grabbed it with both hands. This is what happens when you combine the warm, ripe fruit of Heathcote with the gentle touch of a new wave producer. Balance. Finesse. A little 'X-Factor'. It's a compelling wine, with twists and turns galore for the drinker. A great look at this rarely seen variety flying solo from an Australian producer, and a great thing to drink. Only 80 dozen made.
What it Tastes Like
Wow. Nose explodes with flowers, purple jelly babies, meat, roast beetroot and a riot of spice. It sits on the plump side of medium bodied, but feels fresh and full of energy. Gorgeous silky palate trimmed with finely tucked in tannins. Sweet fruit keeps the beat for flavour, exotic Moroccan spices provide the accents. Gee this is great to drink.

About the Producer
Ephemera is the Project of Rhen Dodd and Janelle De Gabriele. The project aims to be an ongoing exploration of Victorian vineyards, with a lean to sustainable and considered viticulture. There are no fixed regions, and the varietals sourced are ones that we believe are well suited to the region. The wines are made with as little tinkering in the cellar as possible, especially during fermentation. All the wines are fermented naturally and see some time in seasoned barrels for ageing on full solids. Skins and stalks are included in all ferments to varying degrees, as we believe this helps to convey site expression. No fining or filtering is employed.
Heathcote’s reputation is for big Shiraz. And they do it so well. But the times they are a changin’ with Italian varieties such as Fiano, Sangiovese, Nero d’Avola and Sagrantino all finding themselves well at home in the ancient Cambrian soils.
