Story

+

The Dead Winemakers Society is our homage to those visionary individuals that carved their path in the wine industry before us. They were the crazy ones, the wild-eyed wine poets that had a deep respect for both the land they farmed and the process of guiding the fruit to bottle in the most thoughtful and composed manner possible. There have been many who have inspired us through their wines and philosophy – we have listened, learned and adapted the practises of their legacy to form our own.

Winemaking

+

Handpicked in the morning then destemmed into open fermenters and naturally fermented on skins until dry with gentle hand plunging. Matured in stainless steel tank for 18 months. Six months bottle aged before release.

Tasting Notes

+

NOSE: Sour cherries, forest floor and slight herbal notes.

PALATE: Fresh and racey acidity mimics the bright berry and cherry characters the flow from nose to tongue. The tannins are present, but in a subtle way that adds a delicate complexity to the palate.

PAIR: Pizza, pizza, pizza!

CELLAR: Up to 10 years.
