About The Wine
A stroke of genius from winemaker Tim Sproal brought Pinot Noir and Grenache together.
Named for the late Christopher Hitchens, this wine is less about deep contemplation as was Hitch's way, this is all about fun and frivolity. Plenty of whole bunch o the Pinot, some whole berry on the Grenache looking to ramp up the more lively aspects of each variety.
The resulting glass of wine is about as fun and perky as a red wine gets. Knock a little chill into it. Don't take life too seriously.
Minim Wines is the love-child of Tim Sproal, a labour of love that started with just one tonne of Shiraz and a milk vat in a mate's garage.
Tim sources small parcels of fruit from Central Victorian vineyards that farm with care. The wines are all about texture and energy, Tim's less-is-more winemaking approach bringing a great feel to the Minim range.
These are clean and energetic natural wines with loads of personality.
