Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.
The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry .
Name of Estate/Domaine:
Vino di Anna
Crimson red in colour, this wine is fruit-driven with ripe, juicy tannins. Attractive aromas of red cherries and wild strawberries. Dry, with fresh acidity, it is medium body in structure, and has an underlying minerality, from the volcanic soils.
Altitudes of the vineyards range from 760 m – 1200 metres. The unique luminosity of these mountainous vineyards and the variable, decomposed lava soils give the wines a distinct minerality and sapidity. All vines are exposed North.
Organicly & Biodynamicly grown grapes.
