About The Wine
A very new school label for a simple, old school wine style - fresh old vine Chenin Blanc fermented and bottled with nothing added but a winemaker's knowing smile.
No natty funk here. Punchy, citrusy, some spice and white pepper notes, and a slinky taut mouthfeel.
An excellent unadorned expression of a variety that is probably Swan Valley's best.
About Vino Volta
Vino Volta is part of the exciting new breed of vanguard producers emerging from the Swan Valley region in Western Australia.
Between Garth Cliff and Kristen McGann, they have a collective four decades worth of experience in Western Australian Wine.
During his position as winemaker at WA icon, Houghton, Garth saw the potential of the great old vine fruit in the Swan Valley going to waste. The couple have made it their mission to turn the spotlight on this unsung region through a creative and diverse set of wines featuring the regional hero varieties Chenin Blanc and Grenache.
An ex-Houghton winemaker might conjure up thoughts of conservative wine. These creations are anything but. These are fun, flamboyant, and contemporary wines made with a sense of adventure and experimentation.
