New Zealander Dane Johns started his career in wine working for Bill Downie in Victoria, later moving on to start his own label with fruit sourced from just a few organic growers throughout the region. All of Dane’s wines are as hand-made as can be. Small ferments, wild yeast, no new oak, no mechanical pumps, no fining, no filtration and no additions.

Super aromatic wine with herbal notes of cut grass, spice, nettle and green apple, plus a couple of other more elusive tones. It all gives the impression of something heavier than it actually is. The palate is a similar showing and is light and lithe but with complexity and purity in spades. The wine has as amazing tension and finishes with green apple acidity and a beguiling complexity that keeps you going back for more.
