Sam Vinciullo - Margerat River (Wa)
Sam Vinciullo has to be one of the most inspirational producers in Australia. Uncompromising principles in the farming and making of his energetic wines, makes the pulling of each and every cork a special experience.
After time spent abroad, most notably with Frank Cornelissen on the volcanic slopes of Mt Etna, Sam has returned home and settled in West Australia's version of heaven - Margaret River. Growing wines that resonate with where they are from, Sam adds nothing to his wines at any stage of the winemaking process.
Sam's evolving journey with Margaret River is only just beginning, and we can't wait to follow what comes next.
Wines of the pack
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Cow Town Red (100% Shiraz)
- Vintage Mix (Shiraz/Sauvignon Blanc/Cabernet Sauvignon)
The grapes are dry grown near the town of Cowaramup in the Margaret River region and farmed using organic practices since taking over the vineyard at the beginning of 2017 . All vines are own rooted. Fermented on skins and made without any pumping, temperature control of ferment, filtering, fining, oak or additions (SO2 is an addition, therefore no SO2). Just grapes. This wine is alive so should be looked after accordingly. Enjoy! Notes by Sam V.
