About The Wine
The Pet Nat flood continues!
This latest offering from Alastair and Sam at Konpira Maru is fantastic and a freight-train of fun to drink.
Three varieties from the Eurangie Park Vineyard in the King Valley combine forces here in a classic (*ahem) blend of 70% Dolcetto, 20% Chardonnay, 10% Gewurztraminer. There are only really two rules when you make Pet Nat: make it fizzy and make it delightful to drink. The boys have nailed it on both accounts.
It's not a profoundly complex wine but it will absolutely get you coming back for more.
About Konpira Maru
Konpira Maru is the story of Alistair Reed and Sam Cook coming together from various parts of the wine industry to start their own creative outlet for making fascinating, minimum intervention wines. Their first release, a mere 600 bottles, was in 2014.
Their success, particularly with wonderful Pet Nats has allowed them to expand their horizons. They source fruit from growers in central Victoria and the South Burnett and Granite Belt regions in Queensland. And from 2016 they have been organically farming their own Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Gris in Whitlands, high above the King Valley.
