Each year we eagerly await this release, and each year it sells out as fast as you can blink an eyelid. As the name suggests, the vibe is floral and ethereal. This is one of those life changing wines that could turn a sour puss into a natural wine believer. Elderflower, lychee and a little bit of skin contact give you a ‘fistful of flowers’.
This 2020 vintage shares the ethos of kiwi winemaker Dane Johns perfectly. An absolute hands-off approach, with the land and its ecosystems taken into consideration by following strict organic principles.
No yeast is used and wild ferments turn the grapes into wine and allow the true nature of each variety to shine. Not even mechanical pumps are used. Expect a touch of sediment suspended throughout the wine as it hasn’t been filtered or fined.
A must try.
