Posted by Jenny Semmler on

919 Wines is pleased to collaborate with Little Bang Brewing to bring you Hellbound Holy Water, a fiendish blend of 919's Pale Dry Apera and Little Bang's The Pinkening Hibiscus Sour. 

Mysterious and potent aromatics overlay a juicy, herbaceous, dry and mouth-wateringly sour palette. This devilish blend is great as an enticing, complex and intriguing counterpart to food or as a lazy aperitif on its own.  

Stocks are ridiculously limited, please do let me know if you want any, and please do be aware I may need to truncate some larger orders if demand exceeds supply. Place your order here (phone or email)

A cooler harvest for vintage 2017

Posted by Eric Semmler on

Vintage 2017 is scheduled to be running late compared to recent years, with the Durif not yet at veraison in mid January, when typically half the berries are coloured up at Christmas. There was a violent hailstorm in November which caused $100M lost crops throughout our region, however 919 Wines spared this in both vineyards.

This year we have trialled sunscreen on the Durif for the first time in an effort to protect the grapes from extreme heat. To date the trial has been effective, with only a small amount of sunburn evident. 

 Watch the sunscreen being applied.

We hastily looked up the results: Gold and Trophy for the 919 Pale Dry Apera, and a silver for the 919 2015 Reserve Collection Touriga Nacional.
