Pure, crisp and raw. It tastes as if the Bathurst 1000 was raced around the streets of Bondi. 100% Sémillon the Australian way. Grown biodynamically since inception in the ancient soils of southern Margaret River.
After dropping out of his winemaking degree to refocus on a degree in viticulture, majoring in botany, Patrick now produces wines from his jointly-owned organic estate in Gippsland, his farm in Ellinbank, and a range of wines from various organic and biodynamic growers. As for a winemaking style, Patrick is totally driven by purity. The wines make themselves - what you end up drinking is pure fruit. The grapes are put into a fermenter, and left to their own devices. They are never added to, worked on or meddled with. Patrick sees any single bit of work or treatment to the wine as detracting from its original state and taking away purity. The result is something that is simply delicious on the surface but even more rewarding when you dig a little deeper. Everything in his approach is entirely sensory, and the wines are always a joy to drink.
