Good Intentions Wine - GRIS DIDDLEY DEE (2018)

Destemmed on skins, with some carbonic macerated for 1 week and then de-stemmed. Pressed to french oak, elevage 8 months, racked to tank and blended with Pinot Noir from our organically farmed Pinot blocks on the youngest volcanic soils of Mount Gambier.

About the Winemaker:
One is a farmer, the other a musician, Andrew and Louise, a husband and wife team who moved back to Mount Gambier (Andrew’s childhood town) to start a family and a wine label. We wanted to grip the earth with our toes and use our knowledge in organic farming and permaculture to create our own wine label. We wanted to create a community where we could be proud to raise our daughter Frankie. Our dream is to inspire home grown eating, drinking and music that nourishes the land and reflects our personalities and to share it with the community.
We make wines that reflect the eccentricities of our personalities, place and terroir with a minimalistic approach. We use old world wine methods, preferring the challenges of hand picking our fruit, open fermenting with indigenous yeast and only adding sulphur when required by the wine. We do not filter or fine our wines and they are all bottled on site in our small winery. Our aim is to produce great tasting unique wines expressing this unique terroir above anything else. We produce what we like to drink.
