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". 

Ever since I moved to the mount I’ve been frothing on Riesling made here by mates. Restrained aromatics and citrus tang, this is made like others of mine from previous years, short time on skins (4 days), and basket pressed to barrel. That little bit of air that permeates the barrel into the wine relaxes what is otherwise a slightly edgy but pretty, golden beauty.
