Pash Rash, Borachio 2020
Pinot Noir - Savagin- Chardonnay. Mount Compass, South Australia
"Ocean spray. A walk on the beach at sunset. A bag of sherbet and a pink lemonade from the kiosk. Memories. Or the adult version: you passed out, woke up sandy, someone stole your backpack. Classic you."
The 2020 Pash Rash sees pinot rubbing shoulders with some friends. Why? The ferments hummed along so healthily Mark & Alicia had to slow them down with sweet juice. A good challenge to have, it’s kinda same but different this year, gentle fizz, the pinot bringing the fun, while the savagnin brings some adult supervision to the proceedings, with the faintest whiff of brioche at the end.
Sophisticated? Nah. But a bit more chic for sure.
Alicia Basa & Mark Warner from Borachio are quite simply making smashable wine from organic fruit, without any additions. They are persistently delicious and exciting.
