Borachio Show Pony 2021
30% Savagnin, 25% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 10% Dolcetto (more or less).
Adelaide Hills, Australia
The Chardonnay and Savagnin are both 2020, two 300L barrels that “didn’t make the cut on the standard Chardo/Sav wines for that vintage.” Blended with a splash of fully carbonic Pinot Noir as well as Dolcetto rosé, both from 2021. Winemaker Mark Warner calls it, sardonically, “a real classic. I’d say most of our wines are made with a clear idea in mind from harvest to élevage to bottle. This isn’t that, made more like painting. A splash of this a wash of that - voilà! Previous iterations have been either rosé or pseudo-rosé. This time we’re firmly in the light/chilled red/park wine zone. Crunchy, cloudy, bright red fun time wine.”
