NV Deeds Not Words Sparkling Rosé
|Region||Otway Hinterland-Geelong, Vic|
|Status||Organic practices (working towards certification)|
Originally from UK, James came to Australia to do his postgrad degree in oenology at La Trobe, spending 4-years as Assist. Winemaker at Bannockburn before he returned to his parent’s English sparkling winery. Like a homing pigeon, he came back to Geelong and a stint at Clyde Park before finding his own 3.4ha vineyard planted to pinot noir, shiraz, riesling and sauvignon blanc in the Otway Hinterland-Geelong in Victoria. The “Heroes” Vineyard is a passion project of James and Eloise Thomas. The vineyard is sustainably grown (zero synthetic pesticides used) and the best possible quality wines are produced without compromise using non-interventionist techniques: no irrigation, no additions, no fining or filtering (reds), natural yeasts, and minimal sulphur additions at bottling only. Wines contain sulphur levels below the organic threshold. Heroes now have a cellar door.
