BRAVE NEW WINES - BOUCHE BUSH VINE RIESLING 2021
Brave New Wines consider this Riesling their wine of the vintage. Bright straw hue. Bickford's lime cordial, lemons and limes dipped in wild honey. Smooth but intense palate with amazing length.
Bush-vine Riesling from Frankland River, hand picked and foot stomped for the skins to soak in juice overnight, then basket pressed to natural ferment in sandstone Jarre and a couple of older barrels left on full lees for 6 months.
ORIGIN Great Southern, Western Australia
MAKER Brave New Wine
PAIRING Truffle cheese
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.
