Dr Kyatt Dixon is a marine biologist turn natural wine producer based in Mount Gambier, South Australia.
Limus translates to 'seaweed' in Bislama, the official language of Vanuatu, South Pacific. Kyatt was "pretty into seaweed there for a while, and also pretty into coconuts", he spent quite some time in these remote South Pacific beaches getting to know the locals, their language and their seaweeds, hence the name.
Kyatt and his partner Anna are based in the southernmost and easternmost part of South Australia, Mount Gambier, within the Limestone Coast, a region known mostly for its big dog Cabernet’s."Down in the “Mount” we do things a bit differently though. It’s a tiny region dotted with mostly miniscule blocks of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon blanc, which allows us to make wines from varieties we love and also organically farm the majority of our own fruit".
Big Dawg is a Grenache, Riesling and Cabernet co-ferment. Big boy Grenache elevated with Rizza and Cab, de-stemmed and treated lightly for about 10 days for minimum extraction but maximum flavours! In old French oak for a bit (maybe 8 months-ish) before bottling. No preservatives, no filtration.
