The idea of Vanguardist wines was established in Hawkes Bay, following many late evenings between 3 friends from different walks of life. This collaboration and alignment of ideals led to setting up shop in Adelaide, South Australia. Where wine maker Michael Corbett is making delicious, easy drinking bistro style wines from several contracted vineyards.

CORSAIR is a ‘Pirate Blend’ made using 3 portugese varieties; Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz grown in the arid region of Riverland, South Australia. Harvested by hand and fermented separately in open-top 1t fermenters, these wines were gently plunged daily for 2-3 weeks before being basket pressed.  The three wines were held in a mixture of barriques (228L) and puncheons (500L) for about four months before being blended, prior to bottling without fining or filtration. 

With both fresh red, almost crushed strawberry fruits from the Tinta Barroca, and broody dark fruits from the Touriga & Roriz it’s already drinking deliciously!
