About

Denmark is 400 km south of Perth within the Great Southern Wine Region. ‘Giving a nature freehand’ is the philosophy behind Matt Eastwell’s grape growing and winemaking. The grapes are organic and biodynamically grown without synthetic chemical, but with maximum hands-on attention, winemaking is minimal intervention and made preservative free.

Matt Eastwell

WineHandpicked and the majority of fermentation taking place in wax lined concrete. The skins and juice are drained and gently pressed through a hand operated basket press to barrel. Barrel aged for 24 months, bottled without fining or filtration. This is a luscious full-bodied wine with dark fruits, chocolate and leathery notes. Blackberry and plum, pencil shavings and cedar are nicely balanced with acidity. (Vegan-friendly)
