Lello, Si Vintners 2018

Manually harvested, with 14 days skin contact , Lello has spicy floral, grassy and lemon/passionfruit aromas. On the palate there are herbal notes, a peppery lemony tang and a good amount of textural acidity.
S & I Vintners is made up of Iwo Jakimowicz and Sarah Morris who in September 2010 purchased a 30 acre estate with 20 acres under vine (the majority of which were planted in 1978). Their property is situated just south of the Margaret River township of Rosa Glen and the motivation was to handcraft natural (and natural- tasting) wines, expressive of the vineyard and sub-region. They started farming their vineyard organically/biodynamically from the beginning and all their wines are made without any of the usual commercial winemaking additives apart from a small sulphur addition at bottling and bottled without fining or filtration.
