Scary Gully white is a blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris from the high-altitude Forest Range Vineyard. Whole bunch work with the Riesling for a week or so with some daily foot stomping, the rest pressed immediately.
Rainbow Juice is a rare wine from a tiny dry grown sandy vineyard in Basket Range. A blend of sixteen varieties, one unknown. Picked on a single day. Bone dry. Cloudy. Slightly reductive on opening. A flower in the glass. Vin de Sofa is a field blend from the Forest Range vineyard. Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Riesling. “This is what we drink every day and we hope you can do the same. It’s light, grippy and puckering. Loads of bright red fruit. Chill and drink on the sofa in the sun.” The Gnomes Petit Verdot blended with Merlot grown up high in Basket Range by Gareth’s neighbour, Phil Broderick. Hand picked, 60% whole bunch, wild ferment, hand or foot plunged twice daily, basket pressed into French oak after a few weeks. 30mg/L sulphur added at bottling. The Basket Range is even darker and more tannic, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Gareth’s Scary Gully Pinot Noir is 100% whole bunch fruit. Smoky, stalky and peppery nose but smooth and soft in the middle palate finishing with long savoury cherry and violet character.
All these wines illustrate the new Australia – fun wines, deliciously drinkable.
