Sourced from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote. New Zealander Dane Johns (who once worked for Bill Downie) has blended equal parts Vermentino, Fiano and Malvasia with 10% Moscato Giallo to create the latest edition of ‘Staring at the Sun’. After three and a half months on skins and no additions whatsoever, this time around the fruit has imparted rich florals, some charcuterie and fleshy orange elements. A little musk, ginger spice and savoury grip marks the complex finale.

The fruit for this wine was grown by the Chalmers Family Vineyard on the Mt Camel ranges in northern Heathcote. Dane works closely with them to achieve the quality of fruit they require each year. In turn they are meticulous in the vineyard, using organic viticulture practices and have decades of knowledge growing alternative varieties in Australia. All of Dane’s wines are as hand-made as can be. Small ferments, wild yeast, no new oak, no mechanical pumps, no fining, no filtration, no additions. All of his wines are full of character, freshness and purity, and above all else, they are alive.
