“We want to use intuitive winemaking on premium parcels of fruit to make gritty, textured, natural wines. University taught us how to overcomplicate things; to add yeast, add malo bugs and add complexity by working wines. It’s taken many years to knock these thoughts out of our heads, and we’ve found that if you have great fruit, the best wine is made by doing bugger all.”
