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. All the wines are made without the use of any sulphur or any additions. No fining and no filtration. No temperature control of ferments and no pumping of the wines. No gas is sparged into the wines to mix. Ferments are hand plunged. Gravity siphoning and buckets are the mode of moving must/wine. The hand picked grapes are usually destemmed and basket pressed. All whites fermented on skins for varying amounts of time. No oak with any of the wines.
Medium weight, low alcohol, mineral driven, pure delight. A magical representation of Margaret River Shiraz.
