2019 Momento Mori Fistful of Flowers
"Hopefully by now this wine doesn’t need much of an introduction as I think it may be safe to say it has reached somewhat of a cult status.
That said I’ll keep this very brief. I think this year’s version is probably the best I’ve put to bottle.
Moscato Giallo & Vermentino grown organically by the Chalmers family on the slopes of Mt Camel in Heathcote, Victoria.
Long steady ferments in 100% stainless, approximately 9 weeks on skins, pressed, aged in stainless. Racked only once. Bottled by gravity.
An expressive whack of florals on the nose, perfumed stone fruits, musk and spring blossoms. The palate being pretty much the antithesis of this. Fresh and pure with a cool slated steeliness and a fine salinity to keep it all together.
The reason this wine is so reasonably priced has nothing to do with quality or how much care and detail goes into making it. It is the fact alone that I wanted to have an entry level wine that people could afford to consume. Wine for the people !"
