Floral and perfumed aromas, partnered with fresh and pure steely salinity on the palate.
An expressive whack of florals on the nose, with perfumed stone fruits, musk and spring blossom, it's wild and funky with big-time aromatics and texture. Made by kiwi winemaker Dane Johns, Momento Mori is regarded as one of Victoria's most innovative and exciting natrual producers. The 2019 Fistful of Flowers is an incredible wine, a skin-fermented blend of Moscato Giallo and Vermentino it is wild and funky with incredible aromatics and texture.
New Zealander Dane Johns (who staged with the great Bill Downie) worked many years as a barista in Melbourne where he learned about roasting and the nuances of blending and flavour infusion. He was also a musician, making electronic music and then moving towards the analogue version (much like his winemaking).
