More new wines from the boys at Konpira Maru. Notes from them..: This is a really special wine made from the Celeste Vineyard planted by Australian viticultural legend, and all round nice guy, Dr Jim Hardie. One of the highest vineyards in Victoria (and latitudinally adjusted, the whole of Australia, it is perched above the King Valley and is a really beautiful spot. We are really excited to be part of the reinvigoration of this vineyard and this is the first wine we have made from there as part of this. Varieties were co-fermented in the vineyard before being transported to the winery and spening 8 months in old french oak barriques. The wine is an intriguing rose, being refreshing and juicy but also a nuanced complexity and excellent tannin.
