Let your hair down. Get loose. Go on out there and paint the town - you guessed it. An experimental red for those liberated moments in your life. It’s mostly shiraz, picked early, only left on skins for an hour’s blink of the eye, then later blended with a splash of Cab Sav and Sav Blanc. Drink this chilled and let it be your young/wild/free inspiration.

 

Australia’s quintessential Pyrenees foothills. Low yield. A pinch of the artistic. Boundless enthusiasm. And some bloody good grapes. It’s a foolproof recipe, but Pyren certainly suffers no fools. Gun winemaker Leighton Joy is all about the experimentation, from dabbling in whole bunch to carbonic maceration. His creative nous tends to buck convention and make a strong case for staying curious, always.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

Shiraz juice has been pressed off skins following one hour of maceration. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, through a spontaneous movement of wild yeast. Post ferment this wine has been racked to old French Hogsheads, where malolactic fermentation is completed and the finished wine is allowed to rest for a little over five months. In early December a final blend incorporating a 10% whole bunch Shiraz component, together with an 8% splash of Sauvignon Blanc, is fulfilled.

FOOD MATCH

We don’t want to be prescriptive with this one. Quite frankly, it doesn’t fit the freedom brief. So instead, we’d suggest pairing it with a friend you haven’t seen in ages, a night where you don’t check your phone once, a jolt of inspiration or a story that’s so hysterically funny, you nearly have an accident.
