TASTING: Wild Savagnin ‘Solero’ No.1 Release

The inception of our Wild Savagnin ‘Solero’ No.1 comes from our interminable love of this ancient variety that was first recorded in 10th century Northern Italy. Inspired by original winemaking techniques, we handpicked and foot stomped small parcels of Savagnin, which were then predominantly fermented in clay with indigenous yeast on full solids — much like they may have way back when. The layering of vintage over vintage (2015, 2019 and 2020) was to start a Solero system whereby we can develop deep brooding flavours while still retaining freshness in the wine. The wine is a unique statement, carrying an unusual depth of personality. This persona will continue to develop with each Solero we release.  To learn more, read here.

Our limited production Wild Savagnin ‘Solero’ No.1 is now available for purchase ($80/bottle), via cellar door only. Due to limited production, purchases are limited to one bottle.
