During the vintage of 2019 we embarked on a crazy endeavour.
The desire was to see how native yeast from different Australian flowers effected the flavour of the wine. Two different barrels of the same wine (a pinot noir rose) were inoculated from two different flowers; Marriwood Blossom Corymbia calophylla and Red Grevillea Grevillea banksii. With a third barrel fermented naturally as a control.
The wine fermented for over five months without additions and rested for a year in oak before hand bottling without fining and filtration.
Simply, an Australian wine fermented with the yeast from Australian flowers.
To our knowledge the first of its kind in Australia.
