About the Wine
Gary Mills takes a swing at the Pet-Nat wine style here and hits it right out of the middle of the bat.
Mills is known for his serious exploration of site, bringing expressive single vineyard wines to bottle with minimal inference. However, this is a whole other kettle of fish. "This is not a wine made with terroir in mind but rather to create a pleasant sparkling wine for easy drinking." - Gary Mills.
This is light and fluffy fizzy pink wine built for sharing with friends in tumblers while soaking up the sunshine. There's not a serious thing about it, except how tasty it is. To echo Mike Bennie; "Well done, Gazza."
Gary Mills is a modern star of Victorian wine. His Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country: thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality. Campbell Mattinson labelled him “a leading producer”, Jamie Goode called him “the new face of Australian wine” and Matthew Jukes went as far as to call the wine of Jamsheed “a revelation”.
With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah for his Jamsheed range, Gary has been one of the loudest advocates for the inclusion of whole bunch ferments and was ahead of the curve in creating minimal intervention wines that naturally convey the characteristics of their respective vineyards.
On top of his much sought-after Syrahs, Gary produces excellent textural white wines from varieties including Riesling and Roussanne, and is never afraid to innovate with his quirky and delicious entry level 'Harem' label.
Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.
