2021 Square Root of Five
Just when you thought the boys from Konpira Maru couldn’t come up with another cuvee, they said “LOL” and went there. The Square Root of Five is Al and Sam’s homage to the staggering perfection of the golden ratio and it’s ubiquity in nature. Sangiovese two ways, grapes from King River Estate (King Valley Wine Region) and the Aradale Vineyard (Grampians Wine Region). The King River portion was fermented fully on skins over 3 weeks with wild malolactic fermentation occurring while resting in old french barriques. The Aradale portion was soaked overnight post-harvest and then pressed off into stainless steel. Berry fresh!
