Andrew Burchell is the living legend behind the great 'slurpy durpy' wines from Good Intentions winery - he grew up in Mount Gambier and knew straight away that the cherished volcanic soils around the world made iconic wines like in Italy on Mt Etna, Auvergne in France etc...
So after sharing wine experiences outside his home land, Andrew came back to Mount Gambier to start planting his vines. In results his wines have a drive to them, an energy and purity.
Semillon grown on limestone and flint.
At 10% alcohol this light refreshing maceration is like a dive into a fresh spring on a hot day. Citrus and lemon pith with a herbaceous edge. One half was direct pressed to tank on full lees storage while the other half was de-stemmed and left on its skins for 2 days before being transferred to French hogs heads. After 8 months the two were blended together before bottling and left to rest for over 12 months before its release.
