Good Intentions Wine Co Loubadie Doo Pinot Noir

Single vineyard Pinot Noir, farmed organically by Good Intentions Wine Co in volcanic soils. All Pinot d5v12 clone; commonly used to make sparkling wines, de-stemmed and left on skins for just 2 days. Fermented and stored in stainless steel leaves you with a fresh, zesty, fruit-driven wine that is low in alcohol and takes advantage of the clone's higher acidity to deliver a punchy light red.

What is natural wine? Natural wines can be considered more of a concept as opposed to a strict set of rules and regulations in Australia. It’s not new, it is actually extremely old! Essentially, it is taking unadulterated grape juice and letting it ferment in its natural state, just as was done in centuries past. The concept is very little winemaking interference which can include, no added yeast, often handpicked grapes, no spraying or herbicides, no additives like oak flavour and no fining agents or acid. Also, the philosophy includes little to no sulphur (preservative) addition or at least a very small amount compared to conventional wine making amongst many other winemaking points. Some people think conventional wines and the liberal use of sulphur is like a snapshot of a wine in time and can make the wine a bit “dead.” The natural wines have plenty of personality and liveliness to them. Some are a bit more alternative like letting white wines ferment on skins giving both colour and texture or the use of lesser known varieties like Zibbibo or a wild mix of many varieties not often seen together.

Why is it a discussion? Natural wines have been emerging as a “new” thing over the past few years. To be honest, our Harris Farm sommelier, has been hesitant to bring them in stores as there have been some arguably faulty wines out there under the guise of the “natural wine” movement umbrella. However, these wines have been getting better and better and with a fine-tuned palate especially used to vet on your behalf, we’ve been finding some pretty exciting stuff! We are still only selecting those wines that are confidently fault free, balanced, great value and ultimately delicious! Many of the winemakers in this movement do not want to be pigeonholed and known as good natural wine producers, but rather good wine producers, period. We agree that this selection is simply delicious wines that speak for themselves and have merit as a great wine without any caveats. We think this selection is a great way to get you started on your natural wine journey. Have fun, be open, explore and enjoy.
