Notes:

  • Considered the godfather of the natural wine movement in Australia, Anton Van Klopper of Lucy Margaux has been tending his vineyards in Adelaide Hills biodynamically since 2007. He’s known for his uncompromising approach to any additions in the wine whatsoever, but also for his intuitive, experimental approach to his cellar, which has led to his wines being highly sought after in Australia and beyond. Von Klopper’s wines don’t quite taste like anything else. He also draws the illustrations on all his labels and cuts them himself, often on the day of bottling. Von Klopper is a modern day avant garde, creating unique and exciting wines that challenge the status quo and subvert expectations. This 'Merlot'from 25-year-old vines farmed organically and planted on sandy soils, on top of a hill, facing the ocean and exposed to the maritime breeze and winds. Vinification: is made from grapes are 100% de-stemmed, fermented in open casks, macerated 10 days with some punching of the cap, followed by gentle pressing, with only the free run juice being used in the blending of this cuvée. Matured in 500-litre barrels that have seen several wines. Neither fined nor filtered, and no added sulphites.
