The Konpira Maru party starter part deux. This one is for that moment of unhinged mental clarity when you know, out of the blue, you and your good mates are about to tie one on. Again, like Tender Cat 1.0, a wine completely without pretension… solidsy, epic raspberry, soft and mellow. Made in memory of the original Tender Cat, a colossus of a human. $2 from every bottle goes to stopping youth homelessness.
Each year we make a series of wines that are made from the wine that is disgorged while making our pet nats, in this case the Mt Midoriyama Classic. They are the true taste of vintage; a little wild, a whiff of spritz, super fresh, and super drinkable.
70% Sagrantino and 20% Vermentino from the Chalmers Nursery Block, Merbein, Victoria, and 10% Cabernet from Quarry Ridge vineyard, Kilmore.
Wine left over from disgorging the mighty Mt Midoriyama Classic blended with our favourite cabernet that had been aged in an old shiraz barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a touch of Sulphur at bottling. 13.2%. 1060 bottles.
