Region: Western Australia
Grape(s): Chenin Blanc + Shiraz
Style: Light-bodied pet-nat made using ancestral method
Here, Chenin Blanc sees wild ferment in barrels and then has a bucket of Shiraz fired into it to kick off the in-bottle bubbles. The Shiraz gives just enough fuel to make sure the pressure is perfect and the flavors are bang on. Delicious stuff.
Ben & Naomi of Blind Corner started their winemaking journey while travelling across Europe in their van. Naomi was surfing, while Ben was working in hospitality. They squeezed winery visits anywhere they could, opening their eyes to what winemaking could be. Coming back to Australia, they started producing natural wine using old-world techniques and blending them with new-world knowledge.
