2020 Brave New Wine 'Rude Boy' 750ml
Region: Great Southern, WA
Variety: Grenache, Franc, Counoise, Viognier
A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Counoise and a little Viognier. There was lots of carbonic maceration and whole bunches. Fermentation was 100% natural, and everything was pressed early with low extraction for fun, chilled red drinking. Expect crunchy fruit flavours and natural acidity. No fining, no filtration or additions besides a small tickle of SO2 at bottling.
The Rude Boy is back! And he is as delicious and soif-curing as he has ever been. What isn't important is the 6-7 varieties that this wine is built from. What is important is that this wine finds a fridge for 20 minutes before drinking and if possible, some hand cut saucisson to go alongside it!
