Here’s an update on previous Winemaker’s Fantasy wines
Two very different cool-climate Chardys
Orange region specialist Steve Mobbs from Made by Mobbs was granted his Winemaker Fantasy “Challenge of the Elements”! He’s making two stunning cool-climate Chardonnays - one by fermenting and maturing in clay, the other in concrete. It’s going to be one big delicious voyage of discovery for us all!
A VIC Pinot Noir to rival DRC!
King of Pinot G, Kevin McCarthy from Heresy, looked to his own beautiful vineyard in the Mornington Peninsula for inspiration for his ultimate Pinot Noir. He’s aiming to reach the giddy heights of DRC - the most revered Pinot in the world - but you’ll have to wait till mid 2022 to enjoy the spoils!
Altschwager & Kenneally
A classy top shelf NZ Pinot Noir
The Altschwager & Kenneally clan were granted the chance to make the Pinot Noir of their dreams in sensational Central Otago in New Zealand. It’s arguably one of the most sought after regions on the planet for it! It’s now well on its way, so get your glasses ready for a big, rich, sensational Pinot Noir in March 2022.
An Italian favourite with an Aussie twist
Well-travelled Gary Stokes got his dream to revisit his beloved Abruzzo in 2019 and craft a silky smooth, delicious Montepulciano red to showcase Old World vineyards with New World winemaking skills. Gary’s been busy in Italy ever since. Lucky for us, it’s ready to go and due to hit our shores in December this year.
Three magnificent Margaret River Cabernets
Angels granted Stuart’s wish to make three separate Cab Sauvs, from three different sub-regions of his beloved Margaret River. Each one will demonstrate the diversity and difference the micro climates have on the flavour of the wine. 2020 was a great vintage - so expect great things when it’s released in late 2021!
A bottle-fermented Tasmanian Sparkling
In 2017, Angels voted for Rob to craft the most premium, bottle-fermented Tasmanian sparkling wine from the classic varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Because this is a super-premium vintage sparkling it’s a 5 year process, so expect this on the Naked shelves in 2022. It'll be worth the wait!
