2021 Staring at the Sun
Staring at the Sun is what you might call Momento's flagship wine.
It definitely has a cult following in Australia and abroad. Dane Johns, who makes the Momento wines, started out on a quest to make wines precisely like this one. Subsequently he has kept trying to hone and refine them year in and year out no matter what the cost or how inefficient the methods are deemed to be. The blend is relatively the same each year and includes Fiano, Vermentino, Malvasia and Moscato Giallo, although amounts are adjusted to suit the vintage. The style is the same as it ever was.
