This wine was inspired by the man of the people Ben "Bantsy" Loughman. He's a very very handsome man with impeccable music tastes and harder buns than a gluten-free bakery. Talking of handsome, this wine is a sort of origin story for Konpira Maru's own Sam Cook. We have combined the Riesling from the Aradale Vineyard in Ararat (the vineyard where Sam made his first commercial wine) and Vermentino from the Chalmers Family's Merbein Vineyard, the site where we made our first Konpira wine.
Sites: Aradale Vineyard, Ararat (Grampian Region), managed by Andrew Davey, and the Chalmers' Nursery Vineyard, Merbein.
Production: 90% Riesling and 10% Vermentino. Both the Vermentino and Riesling spent 12 hours in the press then pressed to tank (in different parts of Victoria). Blended post ferment. Unfined and unfiltered.
Tasting notes: Who would have thought that combining riesling and vermentino would give you flavours of Hubba Bubba? Well you and us now I suppose. A summer citrus palate of lemon and passionfruit, or maybe more lemon tart. 4g/L residual sugar makes for a bouncy wine ready for a good ol' time. Best enjoyed with a great mate eating whatever you like! 13% abv.
