These lo-fi, single vineyard wines are created to be a pure expression of the site, the region and variety. The fruit is handpicked and brought into the winery where it is left to ferment naturally using wild yeasts. Fermentation temperatures are left to run naturally. We use carefully selected French oak barrels from cooperage’s and forests that we’ve found bring out the best qualities of the fruit from each vineyard. Fining agents are not used and the red wines are not filtered, in order to retain flavour and the unique nuances of each site.
n. [Italian, literally: our thing]
These wines are a clear example of our love for all things unique and different. Interesting blends, alternative varietals, relatively unknown regions. We literally want to create ‘our thing.’ Small batches of adventurous experimentation is teamed with our minimal winemaking philosophy to best capture the individual and intrinsic nature of these alternative varietals.
A wine made in small batches each year from the free run juice of our Santolin Gladysdale and Gruyere Pinot Noir. 100% Yarra Valley, wild fermented in old French oak barrels, dry (<1gm RS) not fined with only a single filtration before bottling.
