The nose on this one runs a deep, ripe cherry, with the trademark smokiness of peat and compost from wild ferments. Generous with the fruit on the palate – maraschino cherry, raspberry and rhubarb. Very reminiscent of a Loire Cab Franc or Villages Bourgogne. Just a brush of tannins complemented by some fantastic acidity. This is pure, natural wine, designed for easy enjoyment.
We are thrilled as always to welcome the freshest 2021 vintage of Lucy Margaux wines to our shop! Anton Von Klopper is widely considered to be one of the pioneers of the Australian natural wine movement. When the South African expat first arrived in the Adelaide Hills, his cloudy, no-sulfur wines were met with some derision. Thankfully, he held true to his philosophy, which seems to be a hybrid of Rudolph Steiner’s theory on biodynamics and Goethe’s “Metamorphosis of Plants” but it boils down to this: grapes achieve their purest expression when they are not altered by preservatives or artifical additions of any kind.
