Momento Mori - 2019 Bianco

2019 Bianco

Sold Out!

"I have now reached the point where most of the wines have an extra year or so in tank or bottle before being released. I think the wines look so much more settled and cohesive with that bit of extra time on them. I don’t believe that when working within such a dynamic system as nature that wines should be made to a recipe or style every year. I like to try and consider what we have to work with each year and let the season, fruit and also the subsequent wines in tank dictate what style or cuvee they will end up being. With that in mind the 2019 Bianco is an entirely different creature than the 2018. This is roughly 45% Fiano, 45% Vermentino and 10% Malvasia. They were all fermented separately in stainless steel using various fermentation techniques and all had a little less skin contact than in previous years. They all had at least 18 months elevage on full solids and were racked only once to assemble the final blend before bottling. The resulting wine is very poised, structured and energetic. It seems light, laser focused and fresh whilst having a good amount elegant structure with super vibrant acidity. The fruit from the 2019 harvest was some of the best I’ve seen come out of the Heathcote vineyard and it really is reflected in this wine. With zero adds and zero SO2, this is a super clean and fresh wine!" – Dane Johns
