BRAVE NEW WINES - SCHADENFREUDE SHIRAZ 2019
Lovely cool climate Shiraz from the Porongurups. Silky, warm spices, that familiar hit of fresh black pepper against a background of blue fruits and berries. A backbone of steam train funk, and lithe tannins giving structure and integrity. Its moreish, you'll want to keep coming back to the glass time and again until the whole bottle is gone.
Part whole bunch, carbonic maceration, natural ferment, unfined, unfiltered.

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.
