Winona X Jordy Kay - GOAT 2018 Rouge
GOAT! Our collab with the legendary Jordy Kay. It's red. It's juicy. It's adorned with a hand-made ceramic goat. What more could you want?
Mutant Syrah/Pinot Noir from an organic vinyard in the Otway Ranges, which Jordy has been leasing for 3 years. The vineyard is very close to one of the youngest volcanic explosions in Australia (about 7,000 years ago), so the soils are black volcanic basalt, adding intense minerality to the wine. The site was Pinot Noir but about 10 years ago the owner attempted to graft on Syrah, which resulted in a fascinating hybrid of the two. A single shoot has Pinot and Syrah leaves, and the bunches look like Pinot but taste like Syrah. On the palate the wine resembles Gamay. After wild fermentation, the wine was aged in tank for 8 months before being bottled with zero filtration, fining or additions. It was then aged in bottle for a further 9 months.
Ultra limited – just 8 cases of this juicy goodness made! IT WILL FLOAT YOUR GOAT.
