About the Wine

The wines of Andries and Yoko at Brave New Wine have been thrilling drinkers all over the country this year.

Their unique expressions of Great Southern wines are receiving loads of attention. And rightfully so, these are minimalistic wines with tonnes of character and are impossible to stop drinking to the very last drop.

The Sunshine & Hercules Riesling was picked from a vineyard in Mt Barker. The fruit spent a few hours on skins before being sent to a combination of ceramic egg and new French oak to complete its ferment. This is not your typical Great Southern Riesling, it's electric and a little cloudy. An intriguing and thirst inducing style of Riesling that should excite the curious wine enthusiast.

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.

About Great Southern

The Great Southern is the largest wine region in the country. Though more and more, the label “Great Southern” is becoming redundant. It is the sub-regional exploration of terroir which is distinguishing this region. From Frankland River to Porongorup, from Mount Barker to Denmark, the detailed and stylish wines emerging from these sub-regions are some of the most intriguing in the country.

No longer a “poor man’s Margaret River”, whether you love Riesling, Cabernet, Shiraz or Pinot, this stunning cool climate region will blow you away with the value and refinement inherent in everything it produces. And the good thing is, it is only getting better.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Tropical scents, banana, paw paw, mango, some hints of sea spray on the nose. Lime and honey with golden delicious apples and a soft powderiness to taste. It has a waxy quality from the egg ferment. Good guzzling stuff. Ridiculously drinkable.
