Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Who is Juicy June? It is our lively and youthful early release red wine that we bottle in June of each year, only months after harvest. The disobedient tendencies to challenge traditions and ask "why not" more often than we should, ensures life is full of adventures and the small but priceless treasures are found. Hello Juicy June!
Juicy June is Australia’s Beaujolais nouveau! We harvest by hand, ferment in old oak and bottled in the shortest time possible from when the grapes were plucked from the vines. Instead of using Gamay, Negroamaro and Grenache are the varieties of choice. They bring bright and flavoursome characters to this wine. All the grapes are grown in a sustainable manner and meet vegan standards."
90/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review, April 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"This is what would be termed a smashable light red in the fashionable parlance. Medium to light red/purple in colour, its perfumes are spicy and meaty, fresh and carbonic macerated—like a Beaujolais; beautifully clean and charmingly aromatic. It’s light-bodied yet intense, bright and lively in the mouth, with crisp acidity, very light tannins and a refreshing finish. Delicious!"
