2021 Entropy Duo
Working within the Baw Baw shire Ryan of Entropy Wines has taken ownership of a vineyard called Willow Grove, which is planted with savagnin, pinot gris and pinot noir. There are two blocks of pinot noir and at some point the previous owners tried to graft some of the pinot noir to pinot gris. Grafting is no easy task, and in this case it was done quite poorly, resulting in mutated vines with a mixture of pinot gris and pinot noir fruit growing on the same vine and in some cases, the same bunch!
2021 Entropy Red:
Made with the aforementioned pinot noir fruit from Willow Grove, including the mutated pinot noir/gris vines, the bunches are all destemmed and thrown into a tank together with a small amount of shiraz from the Wild Dog vineyard in Warragul. This red is delicate but structured, brightly perfumed and bursting with flavours like sweet cherry, red liquorice and a touch of pepper. A light tannin and balanced acidity makes this the perfect bottle for summertime barbequing.
2021 Entropy White:
Made with savagnin and pinot gris with a small amount of sauvignon blanc and semillon brought over from the Wild Dog vineyard in Warragul. All the fruit was pressed into old French barrels and a wild ferment took place before being aged in-barrel for a short period of time. This wine has fantastic tension and mouth feel, kind of like a northern Italian white. White petals, almonds and white orchard fruit fill the glass but it’s the salty acid that makes this blend so moreish and food friendly.
