MINIM WINES - 'HITCH' SANGIOVESE 2022
Hitch has changed form over the years, but he goal has remained unchanged; a light red for spring packing loads of bright red fruit, acid and texture that’s ideal for drinking in Australian summers.
This wine is vivid, fresh and aromatic, with raspberries, cranberries and red jelly frogs and velvety tannins from front to back, the IDEAL chill able red and perfect for outdoor drinking. The form is linear and complete and holds the fruit very gracefully.

A note from the Winemaker, Tim...
Local fruit, grown well, handled simply.
I want to make small wines from great sites around Central Victoria. I source from growers dedicated to soil health and fruit quality; some organic, some moving that way and some more conventionally grown. I work with native yeasts and tend to build complexity in my wines by fermenting smaller volumes with different approaches. Most wines age in old casks, some in stainless. I release lairy and fruitful blended wines in Spring and more focused varietal, single-site expressions throughout the following year.
Since 2019 I’ve been growing grapes on two vineyards in Metcalfe, learning as I go and committing deeper to regenerative agriculture as the seasons pass. Soil health is the biggest driver for me, so removing Glyphosate was step one. More on Metcalfe in the vineyards sections
My wines are made at Boomtown Winemakers Co-operative on Dja Dja Wurrung country in Castlemaine, Victoria.
