After a string of challenging vintages – one including 44 days of consecutive rain leading up to harvest – Gianfranco, from Sardinia's Panevino, needed a little bit of help. The natural wine legend called his Australian importer, Giorgio De Maria and hopped on a plane to Australia. Helped by Anton Von Klopper of Lucy Margaux and Tom Shobbrook, he set about making a trio of wines in South Australia, which would go on to be named Pantom.

This is the craziest of the three. Barossa Grenache is macerated for 36 Hours, then aged in old oak. Fair enough. Except, fermentation wouldn’t go through so Gianmarco tried to do a pet nat by adding about 2% of organic cherries. But in the words of Giorgio: "It hasn’t re-fermented much but the wine is awesome!" Just a wild rose with a bit of cherry juice. Why not?
