Zoom 2020 Architects of Wine Barbera

The 2020 Architects of Wine is a powerful expression of Australian Barbera. The wild fermentation process and 13 months élevage in neutral French oak provide hints of sweet dark cherry, dried herbs and spicy, juicy red fruits.

A passion project of architect-turned-winemaker David Caporaletti, Architects of Wine came to fruition early in 2013 after a couple of backyard 'bucket wines' quickly became an obsession.

David wanted to create interesting and textural wines with restraint, whilst maintaining transparent expressions of the vineyard, vintage and their individual terroir. To achieve this ideal, each wine is carefully crafted and considered with a 'less is more' mantra and a hands-off style of wine making.

With a strong focus on Italian varieties and fruit sourced primarily from the Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley, he sometimes ventures out to other wine regions in South Australia, depending on where the vintage takes him.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
