Good Intentions Ooh La La Pinot Noir


Three quarters Pinot Noir one quarter Semillon. The Pinot Noir is off Andrew's organically run vineyard on the youngest volcanic soils in the country over heavy limestone. Andrew spray's his own fermented sea weed (sourced locally from our nearby beach) and worm castings via the lunar calendar. The Pinot is a blend of 50% carbonic macerated fruit and 50% rose of Pinot fermented and stored in stainless steel for 8 months. The Semillon is from a vineyard on the coast 100 kilometres north west of Mount Gambier this fruit was de-stemmed and left on skins for 10 days then stored in stainless steel where it developed a flor. Both wines were racked off lees after 8 months blended to sit and bottled without any additions of sulphites.

About the wine-makers: 

One is a farmer, the other a musician, Andrew and Louise, a husband and wife team who moved back to Mount Gambier (Andrew’s childhood town) to start a family, a wine label and build our winery. We welcomed both our daughter Frankie and our first vintage in 2014.

We wanted to grip the earth with our toes and use our knowledge in organic farming and permaculture to create our own wine label. We wanted to create a community where we could be proud to raise our daughter Frankie. Our dream is to inspire home grown eating, drinking and music that nourishes the land and reflects our personalities and to share it with the community.

We make wines that reflect the eccentricities of our personalities, place and terroir with a minimalistic approach. We use old world wine methods, preferring the challenges of hand picking our fruit, open fermenting with indigenous yeast and only adding sulphur when required by the wine. We do not filter or fine our wines and they are all bottled on site in our small winery. Our aim is to produce great tasting unique wines expressing this unique terroir above anything else. We produce what we like to drink.
