Personalised Rising Bad Earth Light Dry Red 2020 13% 750ml

A challenging vintage to pair with a challenging year in general. Spring 2019 was cool, windy and wet resulting in low crops due to poor fruit set. Temperatures remained moderate, and rain throughout the harvest period provided challenging conditions. Overall, the cool and wet weather resulted in low sugars (and thus alcohols) and crisp, refreshing acidity.

From the rolling elevations at the Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills, winemaker Anthony Fikkers crafts wines that express both the power and grace of this unique part of the Yarra Valley. Sourcing small premium parcels of fruit from emerging varietals in the vineyard, Anthony's aim is to produce wines of beauty and clarity that are surprising yet authentic. Free and unrestricted in his winemaking approach and with a philosophy of minimal intervention, each wine is allowed to express fully its origins.
