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.

Rich florals, some charcuterie and fleshy orange elements. A little musk, ginger spice and savoury grip marks the complex finale.
