Valley Vignerons Series
Our valley vignerons series wines are a little different to the bigger players – they do look a little murky in the glass, they do throw a bit of sediment (sometimes) and always look better with a bit of air and served at appropriate temperatures with the right food and company.
They are not ‘perfect’ by the industry standard, but they are spot on for how we want them. We like to think of our wines as having a bit of personality, a little different to the polished norm (a bit like us)!! The best likeness that we could draw as a comparative would be the music industry; think ‘over produced, squeaky clean, pitch perfect recording’ vs the ‘artist performing their hearts out live’. The over produced recording is ‘technically spot on’ – you can’t fault it, it’s great… Although there is just something. Something that is missing … It has all the nuts and bolts there but the edges are taken out to make everything so precise and exact … By taking those edges out and making everything so ‘perfect’ and ‘correct’, you lose a bit of that sense of place – the true emotion that the artist was trying to convey. In effect losing the soul … While the live show that you are watching is raw and real, you feel it and find it interesting, exciting, it’s a true reflection of the artist, an insight into what they do, their beliefs, it’s not staged or manufactured – it’s real and you only get this at that time and at that place….
We like to think that we produce wines with that sense of place.
