Vintage: 2020
Blewitt Springs, SA

ALC: 14.1%

 

This big savoury number is packed with the wild herbs and gamey meat characters that are so varietally aligned. Dark fruited with blackberry and blueberries.

As with many great stories, VANGUARDIST was born of humble beginnings. Ideals, harmonised over a table littered with empty bottles. Laughs that rolled late into the evening, not realising the impetus forming; a relentless ‘fire in the belly’ that sent Michael bouncing across the equator, chasing international harvests for most of his adult life. 

 

The Vanguardist range represents the epitome of what they are about. Pushing the realms of standard winemaking to deliver intrigue, excitement and utmost quality, without any loss of sense of place. Ultimate dedication to the craft of viticulture and winemaking, encapsulated in a bottle –through our lens.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

The Mourvèdre is sourced from Yangarra, both organic and Bio-dynamic certified, in Blewitt Springs. The summer of 2020 was the third hot and dry vintage in succession. Small patches of rain during critical moments helped the vines remain vibrant, and the fruit in wonderful condition. The final wine sees around 40% whole bunch.

We’ve been making wine from this fruit for four years now. However, 2020 saw the first release of a red blend (La Petite Vanguard BLEWITT), and the inaugural Vanguardist Mourvèdre. Inspired by many great Mourvèdre wines from throughout the SW of France, it felt like a natural progression to have this wine sit beside the Vanguardist Grenache from just down the road.
