Heady, aromatic 100% Sangiovese, full of classic red rose petal and tar, black cherry, kirsch on the nose. Damson plum, savoury notes of wild thyme, cured meats, sundried tomato, rhubarb, and turned earth follow on the palate. Ripe, chewy tannins, great acid, and textural balance. Lovely served with a slight chill in the warmer weather.

Tasting notes for Minimum San Selvaggio 2020 from the Winery

GRAPES
100% Sangiovese. 14.0% Alc/vol.
FIELD NOTES
Wild-fermented. Unfined/Unfiltered. Low-sulphur. A v. minimal intervention wine, part-bucket fermented and hand-plunged twice-daily to appease the gods of pleasure & woe. Heavy skin-contact during fermentation = blood-red richness yet spirit-like levity. Then transferred to old barrels, small and large, for 11-months maturation.
TASTES
A light, bright and chillable full-basket of cherries, ready to celebrate with now. Textured, a touch of spice and a little broody, but brimful of juicey mixed berry vibes, Italy and love.
PERSONA
A pensive and wise companion for all; young at heart, traditional in spirit.

 

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!
