A young and gloriously savoury pizza wine (mushrooms recommended) from Save Our Souls. Flavour-packed but with a zippy enough acidity to go down easy.
There’s an earthy sort of truffley thing happening, walnuts and rose petals, minimal oak and minimal intervention for a super-fresh and mildly funky taste. Bit of cherry, bit of blueberry. Equal parts bit cozy and classic, a little bit hip.
From The Winemaker
Dark brooding berries & cherries, rose petal, raspberry sherbet, juicy & deep.
Grown from 2 parcels in Dixon’s Creek, the 2021 represents a new chapter in our journey with Sangiovese. A new source of fruit from Bill’s old stomping ground at De Bortoli provides a new start. This vineyard sits a little further up the valley, on slightly more fertile duplex clay loam soil, than the previous Yarra Glen site we worked with.
At the close of a relatively cool March most of the Yarra Valley’s varieties were starting to think about hibernating for winter. The Sangiovese of Dixon’s Creek was starting to fully ripen and by the end of the first week of April it was time to harvest.
The fruit was brought to the winery and destemmed into a stainless-steel tank for a few days’ cold maceration. After a week of fermentation, we pressed the wine off the skins to tank where it went through MLF as the winter set in. Six months of being in tank the wine was sulphured, filtered and sent to bottle.
About the Winery
Unpretentious producers Save Our Souls source fruit from all over Victoria for their young, easy-drinking minimal-intervention wines in characteristic cross-marked bottles. Founders Jason & BIll (surnames omitted from any promotional content, that'd be too uptight!) met in 2008 and began the brand with a vibrant Rosé, a recent vintage of which we've featured this month.
