There's attention to detail with all the Garagiste wines, none more so than Terre de Feu...
About The Wine
Sourced from 20-year-old vines in one corner of the Merricks vineyard, this is the most distinctive and intense of the Garagiste Pinot Noirs.
The Terre De Feu is a special 'reserve' that sits above his stunning single vineyard wines.
This was made with 100% whole bunches, and as with all the other Garagiste wines, is completely unfined and unfiltered. Every drop of nuance from the vineyard preserved in the bottle. Stunning stuff.
Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.
After leaving Allies Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula.
Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines.
They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.
