2021 Good Intentions Wine Co. Relatively Red
Relatively Red is the Yang side of Shiraz, juicy, savoury, long and complex texture with refreshing acidity.
A Good Intentions favourite, the Relatively Red has been with us since the very beginning. Syrah hand-picked, carbonic macerated for a week. Whilst normally de-stemmed, they had a broken de-stemmer during vintage and so it was foot stomped and pressed as whole bunches.
The result is this 2021 wine is still light yet crunchy, self-gleaming with balanced acidity, but with an element of complexity and fuller flavour as a result of pressing with the stems; a nice variation for this year's wine. Fermented and stored in stainless.
One is a farmer, the other a musician, Andrew and Louise, a husband and wife team who moved back to Mount Gambier (Andrew’s childhood town) to start a family and a wine label.
"We wanted to grip the earth with our toes and use our knowledge in organic farming and permaculture to create our own wine label. We wanted to create a community where we could be proud to raise our daughter Frankie. Our dream is to inspire home grown eating, drinking and music that nourishes the land and reflects our personalities and to share it with the community."
