StoryX. The undefined variable in an equation. Every vintage, there’s a number of parcels and batches that are distinct and striking, and it would be criminal to let them fade away unnoticed, so we dedicated a letter to document our experiences, explorations and experiments. They are the smallest of small batches, so snap it up quick and see what excites us.
We've been working with Carignan in the winery since 2018 and it's a beautifully rustic variety that we're excited to showcase as a standalone wine single variety expression. In the past it's always gone into blends but with the quality of the 2021 vintage, the Carignan looked wonderfully unique, urging us to bottle it rather than blend it. The generous sunshine of Langhorne Creek allows the early formation of flavours even in this late ripening variety meaning we can pick it nice and early to capture some freshness.
