New Zealander Dane Johns who staged with the great Bill Downie worked many years as a barista in Melbourne where he learned about roasting and the nuances of blending and flavour infusion. He was also a musician, making electronic music and then moving towards the analogue version much like his winemaking. He worked several vintages for Bress Winery in Victoria and was also an alumnus of the brilliant independent wine shop s called Blackhearts and Sparrows where he got to taste a lot of natural wines from around the world. That includes sulphur. Experimental blocks were planted to around 30 different grape varieties mostly Italian a few years ago. Dane works closely with the Chalmers Family to achieve the quality of fruit they require each year. They are meticulous in the vineyard, using organic viticulture practices and have decades of knowledge growing alternative varieties in Australia. This particular wine is a blend of Vermentino, Fiano and Moscato Giallo which serve as complementary grapes. The wine spends three months on skins in tank on its skin to acquire aromatics, colour and strength.

Sourced from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote. After three and a half months on skins and no additions whatsoever, this time around the fruit has imparted rich florals, some charcuterie and fleshy orange elements. A little musk, ginger spice and savoury grip marks the complex finale. Dane works closely with them to achieve the quality of fruit they require each year. In turn they are meticulous in the vineyard, using organic viticulture practices and have decades of knowledge growing alternative varieties in Australia. Small ferments, wild yeast, no new oak, no mechanical pumps, no fining, no filtration, no additions. All of his wines are full of character, freshness and purity, and above all else, they are alive.
