Ephemera Negroamaro White 2018 - Heathcote, VIC


The Story

Rhen Dodd and Janelle De Gabriele make invigorating wines under the aptly named ‘Ephemera’ moniker. Based out of the Yarra Valley, together Rhen and Janelle explore ‘snapshot’ winemaking, focusing their energy on their organically grown vineyard in the Yarra alongside their love for the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote. With Italian varieties coming out of Heathcote and the other half on their home block, Rhen and Janelle are producing compelling and addictive wines as they further define their Ephemera identity.

 M+Q Notes

Negroamaro is a red grape variety native to southern Italy. That being said Rhen and Janelle have flipped that on its head and made an Australian organic negroamaro white wine. This has been achieved with pressing the grapes immediately without allowing any skin contact which means no colour pigments have been extracted from the red grape skins. The wine resulting from this is bursting with flavour and has incredible freshness.
