MINIM WINES - COLBINABBIN PECORINO PETILLANT NATUREL 2021
Fresh lemon curds with a long finish and robust mouth fill. Some of the most elegant Pet Nat's we have tried in a long time. A must drink this Summer.
In the shed, the fruit soaked on skins as whole berries for 48 hours prior to pressing, with wild ferment in stainless. Bottled unfiltered with zero additions and hand disgorged in early spring.
ORIGIN Victoria, Australia

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.
