FIELD NOTES
The first harvest of our new red grafts - Grenache & Mataro - alongside some old favourites with a new approach, Merlot & Sangiovese. All varieties picked early for fresh and bright energy + good natural acidity. Mataro whole-bunch pressed as soon as it came in from the vineyard (i.e. zero skin contact) Grenache, Merlot and Sangiovese fermented on full skins but pressed halfway through primary fermentation ("pressed sweet") for lightness and to honour their pretty floral notes. All components aged separately in barrel for 11 months, then brought together for 2 more months before bottling. 
 
PERSONA
The undercover poet.
 
DRINK NOW?
Made to enjoy now, chilled! But, will soften and develop further over time too, so can also be cellared for 2-3 years
 

The Minimum Manifest →

You might know Matt and Lentil Purbrick from Grown and Gathered – all about their organic garden farm and sustainable lifestyle. Embracing seasonal cooking, village life and traditions of the past, and charting their journey in two books, Grown & Gathered and The Village. They have garnered a great following and have embarked on several impressive projects to share their knowledge and show the way in living a simpler and happier life.

With their newest project, Minimum Wines, Matt returned to his roots in partnership with his father, head winemaker Alister Purbrick of Central Victoria’s heritage Tahbilk winery. There have been five generations of Purbricks at Tahbilk, and Matt has childhood memories of checking the ferments with Dad. And, this year, Minimum Wines cracked the Young Gun of Wine Top 50 Winemakers with their mindful take on sustainable, minimal wines.

Matt & Lentil grow their grapes on 125-acre vineyard near Toolamba, on the Goulburn River in Victoria, which is certified organic and uses regenerative principles. They will never use synthetic inputs and only add naturally derived inputs where needed to help improve soil microbiology, nutrient cycling, carbon sequestration and vine health.

They have an impressive manifesto, best of all, the wines are great, so read on and learn more about their wonderful story!
