This is a wine to teach you patience, open a bottle and watch it blossom over a couple of days.
About The Wine
This is the first crack at varietal Grenache from Yoko and Andries. As you might expect if you've tried anything else from their kaleidoscopic range of vino, it's anything but a 'classic' Grenache.
Andries fermented it as 100% whole bunches, bringing an element of spicy, herbal undertones to the lifted Grenache fruit.
A little foot-stomping and very little else during ferment in terms of winemaking saw this come to bottle with a great balance of firmness and fun.
Mike Bennie awarded it 93 points, saying, "Oh, the gluggability. A delightful wine."
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.
