About The Wine

This macabre, mysterious wine comes from the Granite Belt in the far south of Queensland.

After a 195 day long slumber in amphora, this inky black Georgian variety finds a sensuality and a seductive nature when fermented in earthenware as opposed to wood.

It's rich but fresh, a guilty pleasure to be enjoyed over a candle lit dinner with a significant other.

About La Petite Mort

La Petite Mort is one of the more unusual wine projects in Southern Queensland.

These wines are made with ancient winemaking techniques, fermented in terracotta amphora and brought to bottle with minimal intervention.

The wines are wild and full of flavour and are some of the most interesting creations we have seen from the Granite Belt.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Meat and earth, plum boatload of spice. There's a crispness to texture, fine gravelly tannin. Dry and sour but some really interesting forest floor and pepper steak flavours. Velvet corset of a wine. Great stuff.
