From over 5000km they came - across both the Nullabor and Bass Strait - five trucks, one train and a boat carrying eight varieties, from five regions to finally reach home, Murrumbateman. You might say the long way around.
We knew early our fruit was toast from bushfires. Many friends from far away offered us fruit and processing space so we scratched together an eclectic mix of new esoterica.
From old, gnarly, dry grown bush vines in WA's Swan Valley plus a little syrah from Margs and Pinot from the Porongurups.
It's rustic, flavourful, and interesting. Me thinks I'd like to see this again but without a global pandemic and nightmareish fires.
