We had a good time getting this blend together. And by good time, I mean, it took a LOT of “deliberation” and late night blending sessions. But, I think (hope!) we nailed it.
About The Wine
El Rojo (meaning The Red in Spanish) was a long time in the making for husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert.
The fruit was handpicked from a non-certified yet fully biodynamically farmed vineyard in Mount Barker. Tempranillo, Shiraz and Grenache were on offer. They fermented all the fruit naturally as whole bunches and carefully concocted the blend to get the perfect mix of delicious ripe fruit and spice.
It has (as the name suggests) a distinctly Spanish 'feel'; savoury and herbal yet light and energetic. But a wine like this isn't to be judged, it is meant to be drunk with gusto - with a slight chill on it if you like.
About Brave New Wine
It is a Brave New World and these are, in every sense, Brave New Wines.
This range is brought to you by husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert. They are making painfully small amounts of fascinating, experimental and delicious wine from some superb vineyards in Great Southern.
With a vision of acquiring their own vineyard in the future, they are currently content to make wines that truly thrill them. These are natural wines crafted without additions but with bucket-loads of love and skill.
Some of the most intriguing vino in WA and definitely a winery to keep an eye on.
