BRAVE NEW WINES - 'MAGIC ANIMAL' CHARDONNAY 2021
A Jura-esque style of Chardonnay with extra time in barrel.
The wine shows notes of grilled nuts, sea spray, green apple and preserved lemon. The palate is slippery with a concentrated fresh fruit character, spice, a touch of flint and that mineral/saline oyster shell character, finishing long and moreish.
Hand picked, whole bunch pressed and 100% naturally fermented on full solids in French Oak Puncheons 40% new. Unfined, unfiltered.
ORIGIN Porongurup, Western Australia
MAKER Brave New Wine
Brave New Wine is an adventure in wine by wife and husband team, Yoko Luscher-Mostert and Andries Mostert. We seek out tiny volumes of high quality fruit from vineyards in the Great Southern Wine region of Western Australia, and employ a lo-fi / minimal intervention approach to turning those grapes into delicious wine.
All of our wines are natural ferments, with no fining, filtration, or additions aside from a kiss of sulphur (some sans sulphur, too!).
We think the resulting wines are honest, idiosyncratic, and seriously good to drink.
Fun times, fun wines.
