This Jumpin Juice offering toes the line between fine wine and fun wine. It's fermented as whole berries with no adjustments save for a splash of sulphur at bottling. It's juicy and jubey but also shows a rasp of savoury tannin that gives it a little more backbone than you might think just by looking at the bottle. Chill it down for day drinking or slosh it into your best stemware at night - it's a great each way bet.
Jumpin Juice is a collaboration between long-time friends and now Gippsland-based winemakers, Patrick Sullivan and Xavier Goodridge. Both have amassed their own loyal followings for high-quality lo-fi wines made from top quality fruit. With Jumpin Juice they are free to explore parcels of fruit from all over the country - not just within their own G.I. These are fun, playful wines made with little to no additions built in a 'drink-me-now' style. Perfect picnic wines here for good times in the sun.
Jubey little Pinot Noir with a deceptive amount of structure. Fun time juice here with an edge.
