'Harem - Candyflip'
Petnat
Victoria

Candyflip is a blend of Merlot and Pinot Noir from the cool Yarra Valley and Mourvedre inland from Heathcote. Gary is known for his serious exploration of site, making expressive single vineyard wines with minimal intervention. This wine is a departure from that approach, in his own words. 2017 was a late ripening, cool vintage, helping to develop the elegant profile of this petnat.

All components were pressed and fermented individually in barrels. A portion of the juice of each variety was frozen, and then thawed out later as a sugar addition to guarantee the desired amount of residual sugar in the blend. Some fermenting juice was added to the blend before bottling, and the wine undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle. Some sediment is to be expected as the wine isn’t disgorged.

A joyful, pink Pet-Nat, with a lovely perfume. Refreshing nose with strawberries, rose water and a lemony tang. High acid but well balanced. Built for sharing with friends, while soaking up the sunshine!

YARRA VALLEY

Ancient writings tell an endearing tale of Jamsheed, a Persian king who was said to be able to see his kingdom in a cup of wine, and whose fondness for fresh grapes lead him to store them in jars over winter where they would inevitably spontaneously ferment and be set aside as ‘poison’.
