Spring Seed Wines are made from grapes lovingly grown in our family’s organic vineyard, located in the premium wine region of McLaren Vale, South Australia. The vineyard was established in the early 1970’s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and is now owned and run by their son Joch, who began the conversion to organic viticulture in 1995. The vines are fully certified ‘A’ grade organic by Australian Certified Organic, a process that takes four years and involves yearly audits and random sampling of produce.
The Spring Seed Wine labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the last century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable. We have chosen the Poppy, Alyssum and Sweet William flower images for our Pinot Grigio labels.
I asked Joch to give me his vintage report for 2020 and this is what I got verbatim and straight from the horse’s mouth; ‘Looked like a bastard of a year; hot and dry and then it rained in late January and early February and a cool change moved in, which continued through to February and March and these conditions finished everything off nicely. There were tiny yields and so in reality 2020 ended up only a bitch of a year, not a bastard.
Don’t let winemakers tell you that their job is hard. Nothing could be easier than making Poppy: Pick the grapes nice and early (we like a lighter style of Grigio here at BoB and Spring Seed wines) press off the skins, cool ferment in stainless steel tanks and then bottle under screwcap (no time in oak for our Poppy). It’s that easy.
Poppy is pretty shy and retiring, you have to listen closely to hear what she has to say – gentle notes of white flowers and pear, and a delicate palate too. Poppy is terrific as an aperitif or with delicate foods such as sushi. Don’t have anything too overpowering otherwise Poppy will be drowned out.
