More of this, I say!
About The Wine
Remi Guise sourced a few small parcels of fruit from across southern Margaret River for this wine.
The majority was Grenache fruit, with some smaller portions of Syrah, Malbec, Chenin Blanc, and Marsanne thrown in the mix.
All fermented as whole berries, all spending some days or weeks on skins. This is a fascinating wine from this region. It says much more about Remi's style than it does anything particularly regional.
Firmly structured, glassy fruit, a touch of herb and fantastic length - there's a lot to like here. This is a highly expressive lo-fi wine for the intellectual Grenache fan. Only 85 dozen made.
Remi Guise is starting something very compelling in Western Australia.
His idea for tripe.Iscariot centres around the thesis that from 'berry to stalk' the whole of the plant should be used in the winemaking process.
No waste, no 'cleaning up' of the wines. Driving to make the most character filled and unique wines that any site can produce.
The wines are fascinating and complex alt-stylings of undervalued Margaret River varieties.
Dig in, this is a project to keep a close eye on.
