Born & Raised - The Chance 2016 – Field Blend – King Valley Victoria
|Aromatic perfume, unusual in structured dry white|
|48% Riesling, 40% Moscato Giallo, 12% Gewurz|
In a word, aromatic. We wanted to play with Moscato Giallo to harness its huge aromatic perfume, but in a finely structured dry white, rather than the typical sweet and sparkling way.
Displaying pronounced lime blossom, apricot and musk aromatics the pallet is woven around a tight, fine line of Riesling acidity that finishes long.
A wine for sunny, summer days. Designed to drink now.
Born & Raised Wines brings you the finest in small batch, alternative Australian wine styles.
They source fruit from Heathcote and surrounds to produce unique examples of Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, Sangiovese and other highly drinkable grape derived beverages.
I blame my father. 35 years ago he went to a wine tasting evening class, there was not enough people to hold the course, so he and a few others started their own. They’ve been tasting wine every Wednesday since.
That was what I was born into, a family that pretty much centered around the table. Or to be precise the fridge. Food and wine were all part of the experience. Very little has changed.
Having traveled the world and studied winemaking, viticulture and wine business in 2012, I decided to get out from behind the corporate desk and continue with the fun part, winemaking and sharing the results with others. That’s me, David Messum – Winemaker/Owner/Purveyor of Wines from the Other Side.
Born & Raised is based on the simple premise that good things should be shared, you don’t need to follow the herd and that it’s ok to be different. Born & Raised Wines embodies the things I love about wine so much, diversity, great people, sociability and above all having a good time.
We’re only here for a short time, better make it count and drink some good booze along the way.
