Ripper Bold New Red
Trial Bin 576 South Australia Cabernedro 2013 and 2016
Region: South Australia
Boldness will not come from dusting off old ways of winemaking or pretending to make natural wines but from rethinking how to get a good drink to the customer while lowering the price.
Today I release a brilliant effort from the winemaker Benjamin Parker which shows what is possible.
To a delightful base of 2013 South Australian Cabernet all from premium regions including the Barossa he has added a large chunk of 100% Barossa Valley Bonvedro 2016. The result is sensational as is the price of $65.
Boldness, directed where is should be, at the customer and without waffle.
We have been trialling ideas which lower prices for 18 months now, the Trial Bin Range, so you may drink better for less. We are not motivated as young turks are to be awarded ‘Young Gun Winemaker of the Year’ as we have ‘been there done that’. The real adventure is to rethink the whole world of wine from the ground up. Grab a box and see how we are going.
