MINIM WINES - METCALFE SHIRAZ PETILLANT NATUREL 2021


TASTING NOTES

This wine has a beautiful fresh, ripe, fruit driven flavour - Christmas cherries come to mind. Some of the most elegant Pet Nat's we have tried in a long time. A must drink this Summer.

A rose Pet Nat from early picked Shiraz. Whole bunch pressed, wild yeast, all stainless, unfiltered, zero additions, hand disgorged in late Winter. From their new site in the Coliban Valley - Winmeaton Vineyard. A south sloping expanse of deep granitic sands at the southern end of the Heathcote G.I.. Farmed regeneratively since 2020. Grown on Dja Dja Wurrung lands.

ABOUT

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.
