Organic & Biodynamic
After much fanfare I can now release the new wine I have had under wraps for 18 months. For those that know it, this is Mudgee Blue plus.
I have been working feverishly to build on what I developed. Why? Because what we achieved with that style was softness, flavour and just plain drinkability. I received wonderful comments about how at any time it was a joy. I haven’t forgotten nor changed the principle of the style, just added a twist.
For now I have added 20 % Merlot, and my time at Ch Petrus (too long ago) has indelibly fixed the capability of this noble variety in a blend. The wine now 41% Cabernet, 39% Shiraz and 20% Merlot. From the Mountain Blue vineyard and my farm, all 100% Organic and Biodynamic.
Cool mint and liquorice, very dark and intense, and a smell you want to jump into and dabble on your skin like a perfume or aftershave. Medium not heavy taste, subtle at first then leaving a lingering fruit taste that is part soy and jelly bean. I love this wine and I am convinced that it will be ‘magnifique’ 5 years from now.
