Single Ferment Series wines contain grapes from more than one vineyard, co-fermented to make one wine aged for a single Winter in older barrels. This particular ferment has grapes from Truquilemu, Sauzal & Purapel


Talking points

  • includes fruit from three vineyard sites, Truquilemu and Purapel
  • ancestral farming by hand and horse, with traditional methods of the Secano Interior
  • naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • part barrel-aged and part tank aged over one winter (neutral barrels)
  • 2017 was a year with frost early in Sept that reduced the crop. The summer was hot and even hotter during the bushfires in the neighborhood.
  • we give each Single Ferment a name and as this was a red wine made white after the bushfires in 2017 for the first time we called it the Phoenix ferment for its having been born out of the ashes.
