Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Off the Books shouldn’t happen…but it does. Every year parcels become available we can’t say no to…Every year special ferments demand individual attention…Every year our love of making great wine overrides rational planning…We never want to see amazing wine blended away so every year small parcels of wine just happen…and Off The Books is our way of bringing these gems to life.
 
Sourced from the Book Book vineyard located in Ladysmith just east of Wagga. Hand picked into small bins and chilled before direct transport to the winery. Primarily de-stemmed before a slow, cool fermentation in small open fermenters with 10% whole bunch. No preservatives or additives of any kind..
 
Vivid, vibrant, cloth staining purple. A wild and opulent nose with aromas of boysenberry and blood plums lifted by violet and spice overtones. The palate is medium bodied with vibrant blackberry and boysenberry flavours, dark soil and spice with faint herbal complexity. A Joven style for drinking now with interest and complexity and a maximum."
Metro Top 50 Wines for Winter, May 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Touriga is more famous as the principal variety of port, but here it is used to good effect in one of Australia’s warmer inland regions, producing an upfront, crushed-berry flavoured red, with blueberry or jube high notes. The palate is simple and fruity with a dash of spice and seasoning, but there is no obvious oak here, just unpretentious, easy quaffing."
