Tasting this fresh little drop brings a smooth, sunny wine to the palate. Fruity, mineralific and dry, the texture of the fruit integrated perfectly into its light, refreshing body. The zing of slight fizz offset a direct attack of peach and pear, livening and complexing the mouthfeel. Cool and bright, a bit of welcome bitter briar completes the finish.
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.
