WINES

PASH RASH

2020 • 10.6%Alc

Ocean spray. A walk on the beach at sunset. A bag of sherbet and a pink lemonade from the kiosk. Memories. Or the adult version: you passed out, woke up sandy, someone stole your backpack. Classic you. Pinot Noir - Savagnin - Chardonnay all direct pressed.
Our 2020 Pash Rash sees pinot rubbing shoulders with some friends. Why? The ferments hummed along so healthily we had to slow them down with sweet juice. A good challenge to have, it’s kinda same but different this year, gentle fizz, the pinot bringing the fun, while the savagnin brings some adult supervision to the proceedings, with the faintest whiff of brioche at the end.
Sophisticated? Nah. But a bit more chic for sure.

SHOW PONY

2019 • 11.7%Alc

Wild strawberry - Sherbet - Jalapeño margarita.
White Cabernet, Direct Pressed Pinot Grigio with just enough Sangiovese to blush its cheeks.
On the nose, herbaceous and musky leading to some kinda subtle boiled lolly vibe. Acid is a driver here, minerality for days. That Jalepeno vibe at the end makes me wanna smash 8 or 9 fish tacos. Wildy refreshing.
This one screams for some sunshine, some friends and some tumblers. Salud!

VINO FANTASTICO

2018 • 12.1%Alc

Campania-esque grapefruit and herby bitterness floating in the ether. Something fun we’d kinda forgotten about. A snapshot of our garden we loaded a muslin bag with Cola, Wormwood, Orange Peel, Bergamot, Chocolate Mint, Coriander Seed and Lemon Verbena. Submerged in a tank of Pinot Gris/Chardy/Savagnin, we let steep for months. Orange orchard, quenching acidity, bitter grapefruit pith on the finish.
Tasting blind you might say it’s an orange wine from Campania, that some mad dog is pouring from a magnum. But the signature kick on the finish transports you somewhere else. JUST. YUM.

PINOT GRIGIO

2019 • 11.4%Alc

Equal parts whole bunches and direct pressed juice, macerated for a couple of weeks - gentle gentle, no agro! Some direct pressed wine blended in to add freshness. Bright orange in colour, apricots and concentrated white peach. Moreish acidity with a lick of tannin driving it home. Fire up some northern Thai food and start living!

PINOT NOIR

2019 • 12.2%Alc

Picked during a wild heatwave, 3 days over 40c - brutal! Whole bunches, jumped on and macerated for 4 days, topped up with some Pash Rash juice. Fresh and bright, with lively acidity. Reminds me a little bit of Allens toffee apple lollies, some tiny tannin hiding out right in the back. Hard not to smash a bottle.

PINOT GRIS

2019 • 12.1%Alc

2019 yielded a tiny crop of Gris, a single 300L barrel. De-stemmed by hand and gently macerated for a week. Bright ruby in colour, a much more serious affair than the 2018. Round and ripe yet still feeling quite light, nice length coming from the fine tannin. Complete.

FLAT OUT

2019 • 11.9%Alc

Semi carbonic Merlot, topped up with rosé. Fresh strawberries, saltwater pool, leading to a savoury herbaceous finish. Inbetween a rosé & light red. Chill it down, its your ISOLATION/HOUSE PARTY/ZOOM soifer!

CHARDONNAY + SAVAGNIN

2018 • 12.1%Alc

50/50 Chardonnay & Savagnin, direct pressed to barrel and left untouched until the following summer. Ocean spray, salted lemons, faint nuttiness. Leave it open and watch it unfold!

PINOT GRIS

2018 • 12.8%Alc

Hand de-stemmed, macerated until you can feel a bit of tannin. 8% SUPER light Pinot Noir blended before bottling. Cherries, Rasberries, Strawberry yoghurt. After a solid day in the garden, it’s really hitting the spot!

SANGIOVESE

2019 • 10.9%Alc

Mount Torrens Sangiovese, semi carbonic. Bright ruby, bright aromatics, brighter acidity. Juicy raspberries, lick of tannin - light chill and off you go... YUM!

PASH RASH - PET NAT

2019 • 10.7%Alc

Mount Compass Pinot Noir, picked, pressed, bottled. Simple...ish? Quenchy grapefruit flavours married with fresh strawberry in a delicious fizzy hit. Serve chilled!

PINOT GRIGIO

2018 • 12.8%Alc

Direct pressed, some time in tank and barrel. On opening energetic acidity! With some time, opening to round, fruit driven fleshy melony pith. YUM!

SAVAGNIN

2018 • 11.2%Alc

60% direct pressed, 40% de-stemmed and macerated. Gently floral, think white gum flower on the nose and lemonade fruit in your mouth. Arse end into a decanter to reveal a focused spine of minerality and nervy acidity.

BATTERED SAV - Chardonnay/Savagnin

2018 • 10.9%Alc

Second iteration of our evolving white blend. Chardonnay direct pressed to tank wth lightly skin-touched Savagnin. A texturally serious white, but darn easy to sink.

PINOT NOIR

2018 • 11.4%Alc

Super light treatment yielding a super light wine. Lithe and elegant. Let it breathe and ye shall be rewarded. But we find it hard to leave this one sitting there.

SANGIOVESE

2018 • 9.9%Alc

Pours bright ruby and dances around with fancy aromatico flair. It gives you a little lick of tannin and a good hit of acid... just how we like it.
