2021 Beyond Finley Riesling
The 2021 Beyond Finley Riesling is crisp and sharp. Subtle sweetness and refreshingly light but nice and uncomplicated. Pressed as soon as possible, cold fermented, no malolactic ferment. All done in tank.
Contains some sulphur.
2020 Scintilla Voile Savagnin
The 2020 Scintilla Voile Savagnin has flavours of preserved lemon, ginger, lemongrass, and yellow grapefruit, with a savoury finish. This is James Madden hat tip to the wines of the Jura region. It was barrel-fermented and left untopped for 12 months in order to promote oxidation and develop, before being bottled and left to develop further for a 16 month period.
2021 Gentle Folk Rainbow Juice
A bit of a switch up for Rainbow Juice in 2021 with the wine being predominantly Pinot gris co-fermented on skins for 6 days with Gewürztraminer. The result is a super aromatic textural delight that holds true to the Rainbow Juice mantra of a skin contact rose (if that makes sense at all).
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.
