Borachio, Sparkling Pash Rash Rosé Fleurieu 2021
Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay
Organic. 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Gris, 20% Chardonnay. Fruit comes from the very sandy soils of the Fleurieu Peninsula. The grapes are foot-stomped, then pressed off into stainless steel tank for co-ferment; it’s bottled with some RS to enable it to become a pét-nat in bottle. Unfined, unfiltered, zero SO2 added. Mark’s notes on it are as follows: “It’s like, they start off as a nice-enough kid, a little rough and tumble. Then, they get into punk, 6 shots of mezcal and a fist full of acid. Don’t like it? Your problem!” Bright funky strawberry fruit, charred herbs, round palate—a salty, fruity, bitter bomb.
