Grown organically by Patrick (and Bill, from their Wild Dog Estate), Waterskin is a (light skin-contact) Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Pure fruited, incredibly gentle and rounded on the palate, this is a wine with all the nourishment you might need to cross a desert. The 2018 vintage of this wine is a class act – we can see why Patrick was so chuffed about it.
After dropping out of his winemaking degree to refocus on a degree in viticulture, majoring in botany, Patrick now produces wines from his jointly-owned organic estate in Gippsland, his farm in Ellinbank, and a range of wines from various Organic and Biodynamic growers. Pat also worked as a buyer for UK-based natural wine importer and distributor Les Caves de Pyrene and helps write the list at one of our favourite restaurants in Melbourne, Embla.
As for a winemaking style, Patrick is totally driven by purity. The wines make themselves and what you end up drinking is pure fruit. The grapes are put into a fermenter, and left to their own devices. They are never added to, worked on or meddled with. Patrick sees any single bit of work or treatment to the wine as detracting from its original state and taking away purity. The result is something that is simply delicious on the surface but even more rewarding when you dig a little deeper. Everything in his approach is entirely sensory, and the wines are always a joy to drink.
