Description
 
Momento Mori was born out of a desire to make wines that first and foremost have respect for the living. ‘Momento Mori’ is Latin for ‘Remember that you have to die’ (or near to), after all… New Zealander Dane Johns started his career in wine working for Bill Downie in Victoria, later moving on to start his own label with fruit sourced from just a few organic growers throughout the region. Dane works primarily with Italian varietals such as Fiano, Moscato Giallo, and Nero d’Avola that seem to shine in this climate. All of Dane’s wines are as hand-made as can be. Small ferments, wild yeast, no new oak, no mechanical pumps, no fining, no filtration, no additions. All of his wines are full of character, freshness and purity, and above all else, they are alive.

The fruit for this wine was grown for us by the Chalmers Family Vineyard on the Mt Camel ranges in northern Heathcote. We work closely with them to achieve the quality of fruit we require each year. They are meticulous in the vineyard, using organic viticulture practices and have decades of knowledge growing alternative varieties in Australia. 60% whole bunch, 8 week fermentation in stainless steel then gently pressed to old Hungarian oak hogshead barrels for the winter. This is a medium bodied and lively Syrah probably due to the vine age and has beautifully integrated tannins. Lots of blue fruits, good acidity and loads of complexity. 45 cases only
