About This Wine
To understand Quasimodo, you must venture beyond the surface and explore the inner soul. As individuals, the varietal wines can struggle for love but when blended together they sing, shine and bring harmony in a way that is only possible together. After all, Mick Jagger’s She’s the Boss is good, but it’s no Exile on Main Street.
Quasimodo is a unique Australian blend of Nero d’Avola, Shiraz and Durif sourced from the regions of Eldorado, Beechworth, Glenrowan and Rutherglen. It’s an amalgam of flavour and colour culminating in a complex rewarding wine.
The composition of this blend changes vintage to vintage, with the pursuit being a consistent affable wine of layered complexity that resonates as ‘Quasimodo’ each year. The 2022 sits in its usual medium-bodied spectrum, with plenty of bright fruit, a lifted floral bouquet and fine chalky tannins.
The Nero d’Avola was sourced from two vineyards; our home site at Eldorado, which is planted on rare decomposed red granite soils, along with fruit from a certified organic vineyard in Glenrowan. Both picks of fruit were destemmed and gently hand plunged daily before being basket pressed into seasoned French oak puncheons and left to mature on lees for 8 months.
