2018 Blind Corner Nouveau
Imagine how sweet you'd feel if you were released from jail early. Now capture that joy in a bottle. This is the Blind Corner Nouveau.
Maintaining its rugged heart underneath, this early-release Shiraz is locked inside a cement egg, then fermented at 5 degrees Celsius for 2 weeks. During this time the grapes go through 'Carbonic Maceration', which effectively ferments inside each grape until the oxygen runs out. This helps trap fresh fruity flavours and bright colours.
Once the egg is busted open, we jump on the grapes and come back in the morning to basket press them, before maturing in oak barrels.
The wine is fresh & clean, yet complex like any ex-con. Get one bottle for yourself and one for your parole officer.
