Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants.

Josmeyer Alsace Le Fromenteau CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Alsace France
Josmeyer was founded in 1854 by Aloyse Meyer, restaurateur and gourmet, amid the communes of Wintzenheim, Turckheim and Wettolsheim. Fromenteau is an old moniker for Pinot Gris, the ancient term conjures impressions of cereal fields and the harvest time. Fashioned to a more natural process of vinification, Pinot Gris expresses a pastoral, earthy personality. Made from organically and biodynamically grown grapes, off vines averaging thirty five years of age, Josmeyer is crafted with the sensibility of an artist, it shares with you its poetry, intimacy and finesse.

From vines grown to flat alluvial deposits, rich in clay deposits, between the appelations of Wintzenheim and Turckheim. Significantly, the rich soils are predominantly of sand, shingle and silt with a high incidence of pebbles. Grapes are hand picked and whole bunch pressed, gently and slowly over several hours, to achieve a clean must and optimal skin contact. Juices are transferred to thermo regulated fermenters for a natural vinification by wild yeasts over the course of a month. Ferments continue until the wine develops its own character and complexity, stabilized in winter and bottled after a very gentle filtering, before the heat of summer, to preserve the natural carbonic petulance.
Pale yellow straw colour. Very elegant nose expressing grapefruits and spiced apple. The fleshy palate is generous with full fruit flavours, grapefruit, orchard fruits and citrus peel characters are balanced by a nice freshness. Sensual and soft, young and impulsive. Firm and fresh, lingering aftertaste, suits all types of fish, goat's cheese recipes and sushi, tartar of fish.
