mesh is a philosophy, and the wine is about shared passion
From the beginning of the joint adventure in 2002, two subtly different winemaking methods were agreed upon to achieve our desired outcome, that is to make a wine with a strong citrus flavour and slight mineral profile, typical of the Eden Valley region. We look for long, rich flavours with a greater emphasis on power, generosity, persistence and texture than is normally seen.
The grapes are "pedantically divided" by selectively hand picking alternate rows into yellow and blue buckets on the same day. The two separate parcels are then crushed at different locations and the finished components and combinations jointly assessed post-vintage amid lively debate, to determine the final blend.
Each component, whilst being close to identical at the start, undergoes a subtly different conversion into wine, reflecting the personal differences in the interpretation of the "purest or most powerful expression of variety and region".
