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.
An expressive whack of florals on the nose, perfumed stone fruits, musk and spring blossom. The palate is the antithesis of this, being fresh and pure with a cool slatey steeliness and a fine salinity to keep it all together.
