Jumping Juice - Half Full
Varieties: Shiraz, Cabernet and a touch of skin fermented Sauvignon Blanc.
Always about optimism. Life’s great and as is this wine…always. Now in its 10th year and countless incarnations. Bright, delicious and incredibly juicy. This year we managed to prize a very Small parcel of Syrah from Mike Sleggers to blend with an absolute punchbowl of white/red grapes in a co-ferment of the ages. This wine has some serious deliciousness, crunch and vibrancy. Always a pleasure. Fermented in stainless steel. Biodynamic vineyard in Margaret River.
