You want to introduce natural wine to your friends and get their eternal affection afterwards? This is your animal. A blend that changes each year, depending on what the vineyard provides. For this vintage, Nav has mixed Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s all about texture here, bumped up by stunning minerality. The acidity has you in tears with every sip but is perfectly integrated with the 12% abv and juicy fruit concentration. Buy it, drink it, cellar it – everything goes.
Nav Singh is the man behind Domaine Simha – simple philosophy, unmatched experience. In his winemaking, he uses low to no additives, ferments in amphora and experiments with whole bunch fermentation and amphora ageing. Fruit is sourced from Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley. Some of the best sommeliers of Australia consider Nav’s wines as an equivalent to premium Burgundies that they have been pouring for years. Strong words backed up by stellar quality.
